One of the truly great historians of our time. He will be missed by all whom he touched, not only personally but by his written words.

Ken Hammer truly made a difference as testified by our Association's special recognition in 2004 of his pioneering contributions to the story of the Little Big Horn in his book Custer in '76 and other seminal research.

That prestigious award was well-deserved. His exemplary compilation of Walter Mason Camp's research papers not only published this rich, untapped source to everyone's benefit but also set the standard and the tone for future scholarship that continues to be reflected in articles and books on this controversial historical subject. He thus positively touched and influenced so many lives.

Ken did not rest on his research laurels as his valuable contributions to our newsletter so clearly attest. We personally owe him a deep debt of gratitude as well as our appreciation. We were honored and privileged (as so many others were) to have met and respected such an outstanding role model.

We extend our sincere condolences and deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
