Description

Print of an ink sketch depicting an eagle flying low over a waterfall. It is captioned "Black Eagle Falls of the Missouri" in the lower right corner of the image. "KXLK" is written in large block letters in the lower right corner beneath the image. When the radio station KXLK first started in Great Falls, Ed Craney commissioned Seltzer to design a drawing that would be appropriate for the station's letterhead. The result was a pen and ink sketch of Black Eagle Falls. Craney paid fifty dollars for the original drawing that was to become the station's official letterhead. The original drawing has since been lost.
