The era from 1910 to 1920 was a transitional period in Oklahoma. As the outlaws and lawmen of the Old West were fading out, the heyday of gangsters and G-men was just beginning. It was during this time that we meet David "Bud" Ballew, one of Oklahoma's and Carter County's most controversial and effective deputy sheriffs. This week on LoyalTV, join us in Ardmore to learn about Bud's colorful and larger-than-life career and find out why he was a man out of his time.
