Deved Collection Alphabetical Listing PO272

Mr. Vernon was formerly Attorney General of Utah, and a nephew of Tom Vernon, mayor and virtual owner of the town of Baggs, Wyoming.
In 1975 I had the unique opportunity of introducing Clinton Vernon to Duane Moran, a grandson of Harvey Logan, alias Kid Curry. Duane Moran, reminiscent of his grandfather’s attitude, upon shaking Mr. Vernon’s hand, remarked: “Are you a lawyer, or a liar?”
