Rawhide was one of Nevada's last great mining boom town of the 20th Century. Joe McDonald described the town in 1920; he wrote "The life of Rawhide was short, snappy and complete. In the span of three years it grew from two tents to a town of 10,000 people…was destroyed by fire, partially rebuilt and then almost overnight practically deserted" (p. 7). Rawhide played host to a number of influential and colorful characters, including Montana politician E.W. King. King arrived in Rawhide shortly after the announcement of the boom in the fall of 1907. King has been a prominent member on the political, mining and industrial scene in Montana. It was a business trip to Rawhide that King bought interest in the Miller leases on Hooligan Hill. Within a year King along with the Grutt Brothers and Nat. C. Goodwin had bought out several other smaller mining companies including the Rawhide Coalition Mining Co. (p. 39-40).
