Charles J. Belden (1887 – 1966) was a photographer who documented Wyoming ranch life in the early 1900s. From 1914 to 1940 he operated the Pitchfork Ranch near Meeteetse. The collection is in two parts: a photographic section of nearly 2,000 images; and the manuscript section, consisting of scrapbooks, correspondence, research notes, and personal memorabilia.
