Since its inception in 1860, the Pony Express has been an important part of the opening of the west to the American public. However, prior to the 1970s, there was little serious scholarly work on it. In conjunction with the nation’s bicentennial, several serious studies were conducted in the 1970s, including Bluth (1978), Fike and Headley (1979) and Berge (1980).
