  Endorsements for American Cowgirl

Mrs. Gene Autry
“I am most impressed with the photographs and interviews you have done and think the story you intend to tell is an important one of major historical significance.”

David Hume Kennerly - Pulitzer Prize winning photographer
"I think your project is essential in preserving the heritage of a great group of American women. As a fellow photographer I'm impressed with the skill, dedication and perseverance you have exhibited in making this project come alive."

Dick Baxter - Dale Evans’ personal manager and friend for 47 years
“Your photographs of Dale brought tears to my eyes. You’ve really captured the warmth and beauty of my dear friend. Your photographs are beautiful, very professional and a special gift.
I look forward to the completed tribute to these great ladies.”

Margaret Formby, Founder - National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame
“As founder of the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, it gives me personal pleasure to applaud Jamie Williams on her significant and current project. Who else but Jamie Williams, the devoted high profile photographer, is more qualified for an endeavor of this magnitude? The research, filming, travel and scope of knowledge needed to develop a documentary film, a fine art book and a traveling photo exhibit are major challenges. Jamie Williams can triumph each and all of the above with the result being an international, historical, educational creation that will be a vital and welcome addition to our American Heritage Archives.”

J. Helen Perkins, Ed.D. Professor - Southern Methodist University
“The cowgirl project that Ms. Williams is working on will enhance our knowledge and keep history alive for future generations. For our children to learn about the past we must have people like Jamie who are dedicated to education. This project will continue to keep that history alive.”
