Images Of The Past: Hooky Jack

Journey Museum and Learning Center

In The Moment ... December 16, 2019 Show 720 Hour 2

Today for Images of the Past, we explore the legend of a Rapid City night watchman. John Leary made his way west from New York in the search for gold, but it was an explosion that changed his life permanently. 
Corey Christianson is a curator at the Journey Museum and Learning Center in Rapid City. She joins us with the story of Hooky Jack and his faithful dog Rags.
