Showman, Entertainer. Foster son of William "Buffalo Bill" Cody. Although his parents never allowed Cody to officially adopt him, he nevertheless travelled, worked and studied with Buffalo Bill from the age of 7 years, after the death of Cody's natural son, Kit Carson, in 1876 at the age of 5. Under Cody's tutelage he became the sharpshooter star of "Buffalo Bill's Wild West" show in the United States and Europe, and later was manager and booker worldwide for the show until Cody's death in 1917. He then founded the Buffalo Bill Memorial Museum.
