    three occasions. He gave a speech to 10,000 people assembled at the depot in Casper in September 1937. Later that month, he stopped in many towns and visited the Tetons and Yellowstone.
    On October 12, 1936, Eleanor and President Franklin Roosevelt stopped in Cheyenne during a campaign swing through nine western states. The 20-hour pause was the longest of the trip and the couples' second visit to the Capitol City. The Sunday "rest" just happened to coincide with Eleanor's birthday. They were treated to a tour of the city and Fort Warren and worshiped at St. Mark's Episcopal Church. Governor Leslie Miller presented the first lady with a very large bouquet of dahlia, probably grown by him on the state capitol grounds.
    Eleanor Roosevelt made a brief stop at the Cheyenne airport on May 1, 1937 on her way from Cleveland to Seattle to visit her daughter and grandchildren.
    On September 25, 1937, Roosevelt gave a speech to 10,000 people assembled at the depot in Casper. Between Cheyenne and Casper, they stopped in several towns and visited with locals from the back platform of their rail car. The president and first lady then continued by train to Yellowstone National Park, where they met their daughter, Anne, and her family and spent the next couple days exploring the park. During a drive in an open automobile, the President fed three bears, one of which put its paws on the side of the car very near the President. No one was harmed and the car immediately drove on, though the bear caused a traffic jam by continuing to stand in the middle of the road. In her daily column, Eleanor spoke of the need to educate the public about the conservation of the parks in light of stone chipping souvenir hunters of the day and others who had thrown tax tokens into the pools in the park.
