Death: Oct. 25, 1971

Cowboy Hall of Fame Member. He was elected to the Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City in 1965 and a statute was dedicated at the Cowboy Hall of Fame on December 2, 1977. His accomplishments include, 1935 and 1937 World All-
Around Champion; 1929, 1935, and 1937 World Calf Roping Champion; 1930, 1933, 1935 and 1938 World Steer Wrestling Champion; and 1937 World Steer Roping Champion. He was an original organizer and first president of the Cowboy Turtle Association in New York City in 1936. That association is known today as the Professional Rodeo Cowboy's Association (PRCA). The Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, where he is known as the George Washington of rodeo, also honored him with a statue. He was more than a cowboy and rodeo star, however. He was also an Arizona law enforcement officer for many years. He joined the Arizona Highway Patrol in 1945 and resigned in 1948 with the rank of captain. He continued in law enforcement as a Maricopa County deputy sheriff and ended his career as a Wickenburg, Arizona constable. During World War II he used his personal plane to train Air Force recruits in low altitude search techniques. On October 25, 1971, he crashed his plane into the side of a mountain near Bagdad, Arizona.
