E.C."Teddy Blue" Abbott and Helena Huntington Smith Drawings by Nick Eggenhofer

Descriptionwe pointed them north ec abbott

E.C. Abbott was a cowboy in the great days of the 1870s and 1880s. He came up the trail to Montana from Texas with the long horned herds that were to stock the northern ranges; he punched cows in Montana when there wasn't a fence in the territory; and he married a daughter of Granville Stuart, the famous early day stockman and Montana pioneer. For more than fifty years he was known to cowmen from Texas to Alberta as "Teddy Blue." This is his story, as told to Helena Huntington Smith, who says, "My part was to keep out of the way and not mess it up by being literary."
