Ralph Russell Doubleday (July 4, 1881 – June 30, 1958)[1] was a renowned rodeo photographer in the United States.[2] Rodeo historian and promoter Foghorn Clancy said Doubleday was the "undisputed World's Champion Rodeo Photographer".[2] His work is featured at the Dickinson Museum Center including the museum's Guide to the Ralph R. Doubleday Rodeo Photographs and the traveling exhibit Doubleday's Cowgirls: Women in Rodeo.[3][2]

Doubleday traveled the U.S. for 40 years photographing rodeos and making picture postcards. He ran a photo studio in Dickinson from 1914-1920. It became the Presthus and then the Horstman Studio.[3]
