Robert Henry Driscoll (Lead, SD)
Robert Henry Driscoll (July 1, 1857 – May 25, 1932) was a pioneer settler and banker in the Black Hills of Dakota Territory. After graduating from Harvard in 1881, he taught school for a couple of years. While visiting the Black Hills in the summer of 1883, he was asked by the head of the Homestake (Gold) Mining Company in Lead to become the supervisor of schools there. He accepted the position and settled in Lead, spending the rest of his life there. In 1894 he accepted the Cashiership of the First National Bank of Lead, and began his 37 year banking career. 
During his nearly 50 years in the Black Hills he kept a detailed diary of his life, friends, business, and community. A Black Hills historian & author once wrote "Robert Henry Driscoll came to Lead in 1883 and kept a meticulous diary for about 50 years. It is thanks to him that we know something about the people who kept out of jail and out of the newspapers during the years when the Black Hills country was growing up."
