Bass Reeves

This legendary figure of the Wild West was the first black deputy U.S. Marshall to serve west of the Mississippi River. He was chosen for the job because of his facility with several Indian languages. Reeves served for over 32 years throughout the Indian Territory, chiefly in Arkansas and in what was to become Oklahoma, reputedly bringing in over 3,000 wanted criminals. One of these was his own son who was wanted for the murder of his wife. In 1907, Reeves became an officer with the newly formed Muskogee Police Department. In 1972 his great-nephew, Paul Brady, became the first man of African descent to be appointed as a federal administrative law judge.
