Who Owns the Copyright?



When Hot Springs Was a Pup, a history of the early days of Hot Springs, South Dakota, was written by Badger Clark and originally published in 1927.


When I realized the book had gone out of print and nearly been forgotten, I copyrighted it in the 1970s and published a couple editions, based on the original book's layout, including the original photos.


This 4th edition, published in 2021, edited by me and Peggy Sanders, includes many photos from Peggy's collection and other sources, a new foreword, and larger type which makes it easier to read. James Parker's skills in laying out the book have made it a visual pleasure. [He also helped me publish my book Write Now, Here's How and we are currently working together on a new book of my poetry, which will be complemented by his photographs.]


In January, 2022 I gave the copyright to the Fall River County Historical Society (the group that runs the Pioneer Museum in Hot Springs, SD) so that the book can stay in print for many years to come, and benefit the community described in the book.
