Bruce Anderson Inducted into the Buffalo Hall of Fame!

Bruce Anderson received the high honor of being inducted into the Buffalo Hall of Fame in Bismarck, ND during the NBA Summer Conference in July. The Buffalo Hall of Fame has inducted 18 individuals since its inception in 1980, 11 historic and 17 contemporary honorees.  During the event, Bruce was inducted as a contemporary nominee and Molly Goodnight was inducted as a historic nominee. The Buffalo Hall of Fame resides at the National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown, ND and Bruce will be in good company there along with historical figures like former US President, Theodore Roosevelt. Bruce is arguably the most well-known figure in the bison world and longtime Dakota Territory Buffalo Association and Rapid City, SD Icon.  He has processed buffalo at the Western Buffalo Company, his Rapid City meat processing plant, since the 1980’s and has served the DTBA in many roles including the Board of Directors and President of the Association. Bruce has been honored with the DTBA’s Pioneer Award for his leadership and dedicated service to the Association and to the bison industry. The Association could not be prouder of Bruce and we congratulate him for this well-deserved, lifetime achievement.
