BACKGROUND NOTE

The Pawnee Springs Ranch Company was organized February 23, 1918, in Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska. Its Articles of Incorporation stated that the Pawnee Springs Ranch Company could "buy, sell, feed, breed, raise, and generally deal in livestock and operate and maintain livestock ranches in Nebraska and elsewhere." The purchase, acquisition, renting, improving, and selling of real estate were other aspects of the company's business. The Pawnee Springs Ranch Company's main holding was the old Keith Neville Ranch in Lincoln County, Nebraska, which it purchased in 1918. By 1926, however, the Company was heavily in debt, and its interests and properties were sold to the Platte Valley Land and Investment Company on July 1, 1926.
