100 years ago: Police still on the lookout for bank robber

October 15, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for Oct. 15, 1909: There again is fear that Ross Bullock, the police-shooter and bank robber, is still in the area and that the arrest made in Guthrie, Okla., was not that of Bullock. He reportedly was sighted here this morning. Officer Pringle, the man Bullock shot after the bank robbery, is still unlikely to live. Police are frustrated about all the clues they get that are not solid and they fear that Bullock will strike out at others. His mother continues to say she does not believe her boy, 18, is guilty of anything. The father visited here and then returned to Missouri to his work, apparently brokenhearted by the reports of the crimes. . . . A two-year hunting trip through the frozen north to kill specimens for the University of Kansas Museum is being planned by Prof. L.L. Dyche. He will specialize on the frozen wilds of Alaska and plans to get a wealth of major specimens for the KU museum. KU is due to have the most complete collection of it kind in the nation.
