    Description

    [Texas Rangers]. Captain Alfred Y. Allee and A. B. Riggs Photograph, circa 1939. 9.75" x 7.75", silver print. Rangers Allee (at left) and Riggs are pictured in front of their state issued car and horse trailer, both of which are marked "Texas Rangers/Dept. of Public Safety." Only the slightest hint of silvering at the right edge.

    Captain Alfred Young Allee (1905-1987) carried on a family tradition of rangering. His father served as a Special Ranger and his grandfather was also a Texas Ranger. Allee joined the Rangers in 1931 and was assigned to Captain Light Townsend's Company "C." He served for two years until he followed the examples of other Rangers and resigned in 1933 in protest at the reelection of Miriam "Ma" Ferguson as governor. He returned to the Rangers two years later. Between 1947 and 1969, he was captain of Company "D" and, after thirty-seven years in the service of the Rangers, retired in 1970.
