John B. Kendrick (1857-1933), a Wyoming state and U.S. senator, owned and operated one of the largest cattle ranches in Wyoming. Kendrick came to Wyoming on a cattle drive from Texas and established the Ula Ranch in Sheridan County, Wyoming in 1883.

In 1914 Kendrick was elected Wyoming governor and in 1916 was elected to the U.S. Senate, serving from 1917 until his death in 1933.
