"Fearless Dave Allison" by Bob AlexanderFearless 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.”

Bob Alexander is one of the most renowned historians of the Old West. A native Texan and veteran lawman, Bob retired as a special agent with the US Treasury Department and began a second career as an author. The National Outlaw/Lawman History Association honored Alexander in 2004 with its Literary Award for Outstanding Contributions to Western Historical Writing. He also won the 2007 Outstanding Book on Outlaw/Lawman History award. The honor, presented at the annual convention of the Western Outlaw/Lawman History Association (WOLA) in Cheyenne, Wyo., was for Alexander's book "Desert Desperadoes".
