Law Officers

Oklahoma was lucky in the fact so many notable, skilled and capable individuals seemed to converge on the region just when they were most needed. These men, and women, showed they had the stern stuff needed to enforce peace in a time when the natural state was a tendency toward choas and unlawful conduct.

Some of the major names include:

Bill Tilghman
Charles F. Colcord
James Masterson
Sam Bartell
Bass Reeves
E.D. Nix
Frank Canton
Ada Canutt/Curnutt, Norman (only woman to serve as a Deputy)
