Biography
Joseph Franklin De Yong was born on March 12, 1894, in Western Grove, Missouri, but he spent the majority of his life in Montana and California. He is best known for being a painter and illustrator, but he also worked as a scenario research consultant for western movies. After a childhood illness left him deaf, De Yong spent much of his time sketching. He was enamored with Charles M. Russell’s paintings, and eventually met and befriended the acclaimed western artist. Russell and his wife Nancy spent time with the young De Yong, and Russell taught and mentored him until Russell’s death in 1926. De Yong then moved to California. He survived on selling illustrations in magazines and books by authors such as Will James, and designing and illustrating Christmas cards. He began his consulting career in 1936 and retired in 1967. His filmography includes Wells Fargo (1937), Union Pacific (1939), Tall in the Saddle (1944), Buffalo Bill (1944), The Virginian (1946), Shane (1953), and El Dorado (1967). De Yong died April 1975.

Scope & Content Note  

The De Yong Papers reflect the art and friendships of an artist, cowboy, and westerner of the 20th century. The papers date from before his birth through his death in 1975 with the bulk dating between 1910 and 1940. It is comprised of biographical information, correspondence, manuscripts, sketches, notes from conversations, Christmas cards, and photographs. Due to his long careers in Western Art and Western Film, De Yong had many well-known friends such as, Charles M. Russell, Will James, Tom Mix, and Maynard Dixon that he maintained records of. These materials are found within the Papers.

The collection is organized into three series: Personal Papers, 1887-1951, De Yong Associates, 1892-1971, undated, and Photographs, ca. 1860-1975. The personal papers includes materials created by De Yong such as sketches, manuscripts, and letters to family members. Letters to his parents, especially to his mother during the 1920s, are the most voluminous. There are no business records, income tax forms, inventories or diaries.

The De Yong Associates records are in an alphabetical order by the surnames of people with whom De Yong associated. Files include letters and cards from the associated person to De Yong, and in sometimes letters from this person to another. A highlight of the collection are the Charles Russell folders which include numerous handwritten “conversation notes” with drawings between Russell and De Yong. These are designated as "text with drawings." Catalogs and manuscripts about Russell by De Yong are also included.

Other materials from De Yong's contemporaries reflect De Yong's interests in cowboy life, the entertainment, and art field. Guy Weadick (1885-1953) and Howard Eaton (1850-1922) were significant people in affirming De Yong's perception of what a "real" cowboy was. The materials pertaining to Cecil B. DeMille (1881-1959), William S. Hart (1870-1946), Tom Mix (1880-1940), and Will Rogers (1879-1935) reflect De Yong’s career in Hollywood filmmaking. There is also correspondence from cowboy artists such as Edward Borein (1872-1945), Maynard Dixon (1875-1946), William "Bill" Gollings (1878-1932), Will James (1892-1942), Pete Martinez (1894-1971), Ross Santee (1889-1965), and Jack Van Ryder (1898-1968).

The 1,031 photographs are for the most part black and white prints. There are some negatives in various formats and several albumen prints and tintypes of De Yong's family and relatives. All photographic materials originally were interspersed with the materials in the other two series but were removed and assigned catalog numbers.

Note to Researcher
The De Yong Papers were purchased by the Museum from Richard J. “Dick” Flood in 1980. De Yong and Flood had a long standing personal and business relationship. When De Yong’s mother’s health was failing and he needed financial assistance, he sold personal art and papers to Flood. Flood created a collection catalog and assigned items different “Flood numbers.” That published catalog was used as a finding aid for the collection until 2003 when it was processed to archival standards. The Flood numbering system was maintained in the new finding aid because patrons had become accustomed to using the catalog numbers as a finding aid. The Papers were rehoused in 2013, and the Flood numbers were maintained.

During the processing in 2003, all photographic material was separated from the sequential Flood numbers and placed at the end of the collection. Due to time and staff constraints, this order has been maintained.

The artwork and artifacts were separated from the papers and photographs, into appropriate curatorial storage.

Considering the length of De Yong's movie career, one might expect to find substantial records to reflect it. Other than photos, the evidence for this career is sparse. However, given the methods of acquisition, this gap is not surprising. The bulk of his letters and memoranda during this time (1935-1967), possibly might be found at the Paramount Pictures archives.
