A group of local citizens gave the artwork to the State of WyomingHathaway was Wyoming’s 27th Governor and served from 1967-1975 and  Secretary of the Interior in 1975.  As governor, Hathaway undertook a signifcant reorganization of State government and the passage of forward-looking new environmental laws – the enactment of air and water quality standards, surface mining regulations, and the creation of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality. Another major accomplishment during his administration was the enactment of Wyoming’s first mineral severance tax in 1969, and of an amendment to the Wyoming State Constitution in 1974 creating a Permanent Mineral Trust Fund, that imposes a 1½% tax on the extraction of minerals in the State.
