May 16, 2023: Audrey Ladd, "Texas Rangers: Legendary Lawmen"

"Texas Rangers: Legendary Lawmen"

Founded in 1823 by Stephen F. Austin, the Texas Rangers have had a role in every part of Texas history. From the early frontier years, to the lawless oil boomtowns and motorized bandits of the 1920s, to the cutting-edge technology and techniques of the modern investigators, the Rangers have many stories to tell.

Audrey Ladd, Education Programs Manager of the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum, will be presenting on the transition of the Texas Rangers from frontier fighters into the well-respected law enforcement officers they are today. The presentation will be a combination of the cases, legends, and evolving technology that shaped the Rangers over two centuries.
