Sep 14, 1978, The Lovell Chronicle, Lovell, Big Horn Co., Wyoming (pg 4):
Samuel Calhoun Hyatt, 84, died Sunday at South Big Horn County Hospital. He was born March 27, 1894, in Hyattville, son of Samuel and Elizabeth Hyatt. He married Rouene Gapin on Jan. 17, 1917. She preceded him in death in 1953. On Dec. 3, 1955 he married Alice Saban Rannells. She died in Aug. 1969. He was recently received into the Cowboy Hall of Fame.

Working for both the state and national cattlemen's association, Mr. Hyatt played a significant role in forming industry policy and took it to Washington D.C. where he helped guide it through Congress for 30 years. He was instrumental in Wyoming in implementing the Taylor Grazing Act, the first district of which was the Big Horn Basin. He also worked in Washington to obtain an amendment to the act which placed the grazing boards beyond the arbitrary control of the Secretary of Interior.

He is survived by two sons, Milton and Wesley of Hyattville; two daughters, Veda Dunn of Wakefield, Kansas and Maxine Hyatt Shapiro of Hyattville; one stepson, James Rannells of Hyattville; 12 grandchildren; five step grandchildren; six great grandchildren; five step great grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at St. Alban's Episcopal Church, with the Rev. Bill Wolfrum and Rev. John Pugh officiating. Burial will be in Riverview Cemetery in Worland.
