Nebraska Authors

Mark Harris

Harris, a McCook, Nebraska native, served as Associate Director of the Nebraska State Museum and has been a contributing writer and photographer for NEBRASKAland magazine. His 2015 book, Rodeo Nebraska started in 2007 as a purely photographic project that led him to attend some 82 Nebraska rodeos in 62 Nebraska towns. He seems to have talked himself into writing a book while trying to explain his project to his subjects. See Erin Andersen, "'Rodeo Nebraska: Lincoln man captures the good and the dangerous of the sport in new book," Lincoln Journal-Star 12-29-2015.

We appreciate corrections and additions to our information about authors, but please read the following guidelines and caveats carefully.

  • The Nebraska Authors database is based on publicly available sources. Unless you are the author contacting us in person, it helps us if you cite the source or sources of your information. We cannot include unsourced information in the database.
  • We may be appreciative of information we choose not to include in the publicly available database.
  • To include an image on an author profile, please send jpg attachment to nebraskaauthors@lincoln.ne.gov. A photo-release agreement is required before the image will be published on this site.
  • Because of the way we are staffed, expect corrections or additions to take time, sometimes up to three months.
  • While we initially included some actual links to external URLs in the database, we will in the future no longer provide functioning links. We will instead record the presence of specific external materials in language that we hope will help intelligent users find it themselves. Web rot, in which actual materials remain online but undergo changes in their URLs, is too demanding in terms of staff time for us to hope to keep external links current.

Please copy, fill out the form below, and email it to NebraskaAuthors@lincoln.ne.gov to suggest a change.
