"Our history began in 1857, and in the succeeding 152 years, sixteen men have served as the sheriff of Anoka County. Some of them are among the most influential and colorful characters of Anoka County's past. Their tenure as sheriff and the legacies they leave helped shape who we are. Beyond the sheriffs themselves, this book tells the stories of the men and women who, as deputies and members of the sheriff's office, have helped to shape its history. Importantly, Vickie not only details the history of the office, but also does so within the context of the broader history of the nation and of the county. We get a true sense of how the sheriff's office adapted and changed to meet the challenges of a changing America and a growing Anoka County, from simple beginnings as a cluster of small rural towns to a major metropolitan county, from social changes like Prohibition to ever-increasing challenges as populations and crime rates grow, all the way to today's modern forensic science capabilities. This book is important for both the sheriff's office as well as anyone who has an interest in the history of the sheriff's office and its place in Anoka County's past. As the sheriff who began this project, I am excited that it has finally reached fruition. Telling the story of those sheriffs who shaped the sheriff's office and preserving the contrributions that each individual gave to the office is important. The path to our future is paved with the cobbled stories of our past; with this book we have a clear path-one of tradition and of commitment to the office-for future sheriffs, whose charge will remain the same: to be 'Keepers of the County'." {Sheriff Bruce Andersohn}. This book has 368 pages and is illustrated throughout. The book is a SIGNED copy from Sheriff Ralph "Buster" Talbot, who served the county from 1961 to 1987. Overall, this is a FINE copy with FINE dust jacket of this MOST SCARCE title. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 064964

Acerca de


Keeper's of the County chronicles the changes, development, and leadership of the Anoka County Sheriff's Office throughout its colorful 153-year history. From StarTribune: The comprehensive history describes the cat-and-mouse chases between sheriff's deputies and bootleggers and rumrunners. It details the bloodshed in the county's most grizzly and sensational crimes, but it also highlights the day-to-day calls that deputies handled, including the theft of cattle, dogfighting rings and neighbor disputes. In more recent history, the book describes innovation and efficiencies in the Sheriff's Office that are still in place today. The Anoka County Sheriff's Office investigates all death and sex crimes in the county and helps with other major investigations as needed. Other highlights from the book: · Sheriff Thomas Henderson investigated the county's first recorded homicide in January 1860. After several shots of whiskey, two hunters accused a tavern owner of stealing a mink pelt. The assailants stomped the victim, then used a butcher knife, jack knife, wood ax and a rifle to finish the job. · A notorious cow thief escaped Stillwater prison in 1871 and hid out in Anoka County. The sheriff organized a search party in the dark of night to find the daring criminal and bring him to justice. · Anoka marshal and former sheriff's deputy P.E. Russell arrested 25 women active in the temperance movement for gathering for devotion and prayers in front of an Anoka saloon in 1874. Jurors deliberating the case demanded to see where the women were arrested. Eight of the 12 jurors stopped into the saloon for a drink before returning to the courtroom. · During World War I, Sheriff U.S. Red Pratt organized the "Safe Guard of Anoka County" to stamp out meetings of "seditious or disloyal elements" and the armed civilian "automobile posse" to chase down the criminal element entering the county from Minneapolis. More than 100 automobile owners joined the posse.
