Arthur F Barrows
Officer Arthur F. Barrows a bicycle officer, died on June 4, 1911, at 1000 Indiana Avenue. A live wire had blown down after a storm. When Officer Barrows arrived on the scene, children were near the wire. Having at one time been an electrician, Officer Barrows tried to tie the wire around the pole from which it had fallen. The wire slipped and struck the officer's right hand, and Officer Barrows fell to the sidewalk. Attempts to revive Barrows were made by a number of spectators, among whom was Lon McClure , a former saloon keeper and recognized enemy of the bicycle officer. Barrows was taken from the scene by ambulance, but died just as the ambulance reached the hospital entrance. Barrows was 31 years old when he died. He had been appointed to the Department on June 3, 1907, and served as a patrolman until April 9, 1909, when he was made a bicycle man.
