"Fearless Dave Allison" by Bob Alexander
Dave Allison became the youngest sheriff in the State of Texas in 1888 and was still wearing a badge when he was gunned down in 1923.
Between those times, he was six times an elected sheriff; a member of the Texas Rangers and Arizona Rangers; Chief of Police at Roswell, New Mexico; personal bodyguard of Colonel William Cornell Green; and Livestock Inspector. Devoid of bravado, yet fearless and deadly when provoked.
Allison was described by George S. Patton as, “The most noted gunman here in Texas.”
