Announcing the passing of Robert G. McCubbin, a supporter of Jesse James Soul Liberty, and collector of Jesse James imagery.Its with great sadness that I share the news that legendary Robert G. McCubbin passed away this morning.

He was well known and respected in the American West history community, especially among Billy the Kid historians and enthusiasts. Mr. McCubbin was most well-known for his historic photographs, documents, books and artifacts, many pertaining to Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War.

McCubbin was also publisher of “True West Magazine,” and a founder of the Wild West History Association.

Aside from his incredible collection, wealth of history knowledge, he was also a wonderful and funny guy. I'm so blessed to have met and spent two days hanging out with him in Lincoln back in 2014.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends.
