The Wild Bunch - wild west show trade journal

Hello all,

Does anyone out there happen to know of an archive or library that has a full or partial run of the trade journal The Wild Bunch? I'm not sure when it was founded or how long it ran, but it was the trade journal for Wild West show performers in the early 20th century. The Performing Arts Division of the NY Public Library does not have it. And it is difficult to track down via various search engines because of the film by the same title, which clogs the search results!

Thanks in advance,
