I have been trying to find out something about two men that robbed the bank my father worked in at Asher, OK in 1929. Their names were William Campbell and Plez Clark. Are they mentioned in the book? Carl

I don't believe so. I don't remember the robbery right offhand but will check the index. There are so many thousands of crimes from the period mentioned in the book that I couldn't say off the top of my head.
