New Book: Guardian of the Law

December 5, 2008

UTSA Library Special Collections has acquired Guardian of the Law: The Life and Times of William Matthew Tilghman, by Glenn Shirley.

This is a special collector’s edition signed and numbered by the author. The work contains 34 pages of photographs and illustrations covering the eventful life of Bill Tilghman, much of which has never appeared in print. Tilghman was a lawman and gunslinger, but unlike most peace officers, he was honest and incorruptible.

Glenn D. Shirley (1916-2002) is known as one of the foremost historical writers about the American West. Working in law enforcement from 1936-1969, he combined his interests in the law and Western history in his many published works.
