Historian. He was a prolific researcher and noted author of numerous non-fiction books about the American Old West, occasionally writing under the pseudonym "Jesse Ed Rascoe". He had a particular interest in outlaws and gunfighters. He published books about such notable Western hardcases as Wild Bill Longley, Cullen Baker and Black Jack Ketchum. Perhaps his most enduring contribution to the history of the Old West is his meticulously researched 2 volume biography of gunfighter Wyatt Earp. The books, "Wyatt Earp: The Untold Story" (1963)and "Wyatt Earp: The Man and the Myth" (1964), started a trend among Earp researchers that led to a partial "debunking" of the popular legend created by movies and television. (bio by: George Bacon)
