1930s Pendleton Round-Up Costume Case Heads to State Supreme Court

Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, Ore. - The fight over an 83-year-old costume from Oregon's biggest rodeo is now headed to the state Supreme Court.

The costume is a fringed leather skirt and vest, worn in 1930 by the Pendleton Round-Up rodeo queen Lois McIntyre.  

McIntyre died in 1964, but her family agreed to display the costume in the Pendleton Round-Up Hall of Fame.

In 2000, her family says the $25,000 outfit went missing, and into the hands of another former rodeo queen who refused to give it back.

The Oregon Supreme Court will hear the case in September.
