Texas ranching millionaire, Col. William Thomas Johnson, began producing rodeos in 1928 and by 1931 took over the Madison Square Garden rodeo. Johnson scouted and brought young cowgirls onto the big-time circuit. According to Mary Lou LeCompte in her book Cowgirls of the Rodeo, “at a time when health and accident insurance was nonexistent in the dangerous business, Johnson financed the medical treatment of women injured at his rodeos, visited them in the hospital, and paid for their transportation home when they were released.”
