Higley, Brewster
Brewster Martin Higley VI (November 30, 1823 - December 9, 1911) was an otolaryngologist who became famous for writing "The Western Home." This poem, originally written in 1872 and published under the title "Oh, Give Me a Home Where the Buffalo Roam" in the Smith County Pioneer in 1873, would be set to music to become the lyrics for the famous American folksong "Home on the Range."
Because Higley wrote "The Western Home" while living in Smith County, Kansas, and because they felt it described their state very well, the Kansas legislature voted to make "Home on the Range" the official state song on April 8, 1947.

Everybody knows the song “Home on the Range”, and rarely does a campfire gathering pass without singing this anthem to the West. It might surprise you though, to find out a little bit more about the origins of this song, and its writer! To start with, Home on the Range is the state song of Kansas! When I think of the West, Kansas doesn’t come to mind unless I think about Gunsmoke, with Matt Dillon and Chester, and later Festus keeping order in Dodge City.
