    Description

    [Texas Rangers]. Photograph of Captain E. H. Hammond and Two Rangers. 10" x 8", silver print. Pictured are E. H. Hammond, C. M. "Buck" Weaver, and W. O. Davis, identified on the verso and dated December 15, 1933, standing shoulder to shoulder in front of a chain link fence and a row of benches. Areas of light silvering around the edges in the darker areas.

    When this photograph was taken, Hammond was concluding his first year as captain of Company "C." Previous to his appointment (January 1933), Hammond had no experience in law enforcement. He and his men were sent to East Texas to combat nightly smuggling of oil into Louisiana and Oklahoma, known as "hot oil." His efforts were a complete failure and he resigned in August 1934.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
