WILLIAM GALISPIE ANGUS
Biography | show moreshow less
William Galispie "Red" Angus (1849-1921) was a former "professional bartender" in Buffalo before being elected Sheriff of Johnson County in 1889. He served until 1983, during the tense period of the Johnson County War. Angus, who sided with the small ranchers against the big cattlemen, is best known for his lax police work in an investigation of the slaying of homesteader John Tisdale in December 1891. Despite a strong case against Frank Canton, who himself had been a Deputy U.S. Marshal and Sheriff of Johnson County, Angus' slovenly approach to the case led to Canton being freed.
