Summing up the life of Masterson (1853-1921) in a few sentences isn't an easy thing. He was an American frontier gambler and buffalo hunter and a scout for the United States Army. Masterson was also a lawman, serving as a deputy in Dodge City, Kansas alongside Wyatt Earp and later sheriff for Ford County, Kansas (1877-1879), as well as town marshal of Trinidad (1881-1882) and later, during the administration of President Theodore Roosevelt, as a U. S. Marshall for the southern district of New York. He was also a journalist, beginning his career in the political hotbed of Dodge City and later as a sports writer in Denver, Colorado and in New York City at the New York Morning Telegraph.
