1451Hugh Ross Blanding Photo
- Aug 1, 2000Checked out a book from the library called "Heck Thomas: Frontier
Marshall" by Glenn Shirley (1962).
It's a rather interesting book about a gunfighter in Oklahoma
Territory. He spent his last remaining years as Police Chief of
Lawton. There are some great photos...one has heck posing with some
law-men in Lawton, and sitting to his left is Hugh Ross Blanding.
I've uploaded the photo to the files section under 'Friends and
Family of Blanding'. There is quite a resemblence to Don. I've
confirmed his identity from a photo of Hugh that Donna Wendt gave me
There is supposed to be a mention of Hugh in the book, but I haven't
come across it yet.
