Biographical Note

At the time of his death in 1955, Roy Wilkinson Aldrich had served in the Texas Rangers longer than any other man, 32 years, from his enlistment in 1915 to retirement in 1947 at the age of 78. Aldrich built his career upon the major law-enforcement issues of Texas in the early twentieth century. These issues included violence along the Mexican border, racist and other mob violence, and the problems associated with the oil boomtowns, all of which challenged the abilities of the Texas Rangers through the 1930s.

Born in Quincy, Illinois, September 17, 1869, Aldrich was raised in Golden City, Missouri, the son of a wealthy banker, Joseph Wilkinson Aldrich. Though he attended school only six months, Roy Aldrich was educated at home by his mother, Georgia Ann Wakeman Aldrich, and he lived a varied and adventurous life before joining the Texas Rangers.

Leaving home in 1888, Aldrich traveled first to the Idaho Territory, finding work as a miner and lumberjack. The next year he made his first trip to Mexico, delivering a load of pigs by train from Kansas City. In 1890 he returned to Golden City, where he and his younger brother, Jules Wakeman Aldrich, after the death of their father, took over the bank for three years, becoming the youngest bankers in the state. During this period, Roy Aldrich served as deputy sheriff of Barton County, Missouri.

In 1893 he traveled to Oklahoma (Indian) Territory, trading horses with the Cherokee Indians and participating in the land rush in the Cherokee Strip. The sale of the Aldrich Banking Company in Golden City allowed Aldrich to purchase a coffee plantation in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico, where he lived for several years, until 1896, when he joined the Missouri National Guard as a second lieutenant. In 1898 and 1899, during the Spanish-American War, he served as first lieutenant in Company C of the Second Regiment of Infantry, stationed in Georgia and Kentucky.

After his coffee plantation was ruined by severe frosts, Aldrich traveled in 1899 to Arizona Territory, where he mined for copper in Pima County and drove a stage coach near Tucson, where his grandfather, Mark A. Aldrich, had lived from 1856 to 1874.

Early in 1901, Aldrich contracted to deliver 1,100 horses from Kansas City to New Orleans, for the British Cavalry's Remount Service, and then agreed to oversee the transportation of the horses by sea to South Africa for service in the Boer War. Returning to this country late that same year after travels in Europe, Aldrich moved to Hobart, Oklahoma Territory, where he worked as a bank cashier, was elected city treasurer, and served as deputy sheriff.

In 1903 Aldrich married Della Dunlap, the daughter of Andrew Judson Dunlap, president of the Hobart National Bank. The marriage, marked by long periods of separation and Della's ill health, lasted until 1913 or 1914, when it ended in divorce in San Antonio, Texas. Aldrich seldom mentioned his marriage and allowed numerous articles and a master's thesis (The Life of Captain R. W. Aldrich, by Virginia Duncan, Sul Ross State Teachers College, Alpine Texas, 1942) to characterize him as a life-long bachelor.

With his brother Jules (called "Tod"), Roy Aldrich went into the real estate business in 1907 in Corpus Christi, Texas, building the first pleasure resort there. In 1909 they moved their partnership to San Antonio, Texas, where they were soon joined by their mother.

The violent turmoil in South Texas stemming from the Mexican Revolution drew Roy Aldrich, then past the age of 45, to enlist in the Texas Rangers in March of 1915. After two years in the Rio Grande borderlands with Company A, he was transferred to Austin and promoted to the rank of sergeant. During the First World War, Aldrich served as Chief Inspector for the Selective Service in Texas, and in 1918 he was promoted to captain of Company H of the Texas Rangers and made quartermaster. His brother Jules also joined the Texas Rangers, serving until his death in 1940. For the last years before his retirement in November of 1947, Roy Aldrich was in charge of drug and narcotic law enforcement.

Outside the Texas Rangers, Aldrich was known for his interests in Texas history, botany, and natural history. After the death of Georgia Aldrich in 1920, he purchased a 20-acre farm on Manor Road, near Austin, at the site of the former Robert Mueller Municipal Airport. His gardens of desert plants, menagerie of native animals, collections of Indian artifacts and other objects from the Old West, and his 10,000-volume library of rare books were famous throughout the state. After his death in 1955, his books and many of his manuscript materials were purchased by Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas, and the artifact collections went to the Big Bend Museum there.

Scope and Contents

The Roy Wilkinson Aldrich papers, 1858-1956, were purchased by the Barker Center (now Briscoe Center) from the estate of Dudley R. Dobie, rare book dealer, Texana collector, and a long-time friend of Aldrich. From 1955 to 1958, Dobie had served as agent for Aldrich's heir, Mrs. Edna Riley of Austin, in the sale of Aldrich's books and other materials to Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas. Many of the papers in this collection bear handwritten notes made by Dudley Dobie after 1955.

Approximately three-quarters of these papers pertain to Aldrich's private life and reflect his interests outside law enforcement: his family, his numerous friends, his travels, regional history, his menagerie and gardens, his collections of Western artifacts, and his valuable library of rare books. The remaining one-quarter of the Aldrich Papers relates to the Texas Rangers and Aldrich's 32-year career with that organization.

Correspondence, which comprises almost half of this collection, has been placed first in the arrangement. Of great interest is the 1914 correspondence concerning the kidnapping and murder of Clemente Vergara, an American citizen killed in Mexico, and the subsequent retrieval of his body by Company A of the Texas Rangers, under Captain J. J. Sanders.

The miscellaneous Texas Ranger manuscript materials include receipts for property; a statement and a witness's oath from Desdemona, Texas, in 1920; a Ranger's oath of membership; an undated membership roster; and several notes and memoranda.

Further information about Roy Wilkinson Aldrich's early life is reflected in the scrapbooks, diary, and financial records, arranged after the correspondence. The first scrapbook, composed primarily of newspaper clippings concerning members of the Aldrich family, includes personal accounts by Roy Aldrich of his experiences in the Pacific Northwest in 1888, his participation in the 1893 land rush in the Cherokee Strip of Oklahoma, and his adventures in Mexico in the 1890s. The diary recounts his observations of Mexico during an 1894 train trip.

The certificates, licenses, passes, and memorabilia document many of the activities and interests of Roy Aldrich. Included are papers relating to fraternal organizations, banking, military service, political activities, social occasions, hunting and collecting, the Texas Rangers, and other business and professional matters.

Personal records and notes include newspaper advertisements of the Aldrich Brothers real estate company and undated sketches and diagrams of several houses made on stationery from the Aldrich Banking Company of Golden City, Missouri, between 1891 and 1893.

The literary productions include three items by Roy Aldrich: "The Texas Rangers," a 13-page typescript dated 1937; an undated composition entitled "The Peyote Aldrich Letter," consisting of a five-page typescript directed to Mrs. Howell W. Jones of San Antonio, a photograph of Aldrich with two Kiowa Indians, a photograph of a printed reproduction of six peyote plants, plus a 12-page reprint of "Mescal: A New Artificial Paradise," by Havelock Ellis, 1898; and an undated three-page mimeographed typescript entitled "Brief Sketch of Ranger History."

Other literary productions deal with the death of Roy W. Aldrich (a poem) and a fictional hunting incident.

The printed materials on floriculture reflect Aldrich's interest in gardening. Printed materials on books include advertisements; title pages and prospecti from the Texas State Historical Association, 1945-1947; and an undated, bound, rare-book catalog from Gammel's Book Store in Austin. Printed materials related to Roy Aldrich include a 1945 reprint of "Noteworthy Plants of Texas," by B. C. Tharp, containing a biographical sketch of Aldrich; the April 1954 issue of Pony Express, devoted to the life of Roy W. Aldrich; and a 1955 publication on the Genetics Foundation of the Department of Zoology at the University of Texas at Austin, citing the contributions and containing a photograph of Roy Aldrich. The miscellaneous personal printed materials include travel souvenirs from South Africa and Plymouth, England; mild erotica from the 1920s and 1930s; and a historical summary from the Texas Centennial Exposition in 1936.

The printed materials related to the Texas Rangers and the Texas Department of Public Safety include a 1920 "wanted" poster from Desdemona, Texas; a 1923 publication entitled, "Report of State Ranger and Martial Law Activities of the National Guard of Texas, 1921 and 1922"; a 1927 list of "Special Orders"; a "Voluntary Statement" form from the 1940s; a March 1942 issue of the DPS News, containing an article entitled, "Saluting Capt. R. W. Aldrich," inscribed to Dudley R. Dobie by Aldrich; a 1942 report on the "Driver Improvement Section of the Driver's License Division"; and a 1950 membership roster of the Texas Rangers.

The newspaper clippings and magazine articles include two 1891 obituaries of Joseph W. Aldrich; a March 9, 1914, report from the Laredo (Texas) Times, on the recovery from Mexico of the body of Clemente Vergara; and numerous articles on activities of the Texas Rangers between 1914 and 1947, with the greatest number of articles dated between 1927 and 1930. In addition, a number of clippings describe the life and career of Roy Aldrich.

The two books by Charles Egbert Craddock contain miniature photographs of Georgia Ann Wakeman Aldrich, pasted inside the front covers. One is inscribed to Mama from Roy, and dated Christmas 1886.

The photographs consist of images of Aldrich; his homes, family members, and friends; landscapes; Indians in Arizona and Oklahoma Territory; Mexico; the Missouri National Guard camp during the War of 1898; scenes of late nineteenth and early twentieth century Texas, especially South and Southwest Texas; and reproductions of Western art. There are a variety of print types, including gelatin silver or collodion prints, mounted albumen prints, albumen cartes de visite, cyanotype prints, and others. The first sub-series contains photographs related to Aldrich's life before his move to Texas in 1907 and his enlistment in the Texas Rangers, and span from childhood to travel to different states and territories in the U.S. and Mexico. Subjects include Aldrich, his family members, his friends, and flora and fauna. The second sub-series contains photos pertaining to Aldrich's years in Texas and his career with the Texas Rangers. This sub-series includes photos from several different locations in Texas, and document the Mexican Revolution and Aldrich's work as a Texas Ranger. There are also photos from later in Aldrich's life, including Old West reenactments and his home in Austin. Also included in the photographs series are an etching and several art reproductions.

The description and inventory from 1981 of the Roy W. Aldrich Papers in the Archives of the Big Bend at Sul Ross State University, Alpine, Texas, are available in the collection's holding record.
