Friday Faces: O.P. Kelley

Orville Pollock Kelley ran a grocery store/meat market, served as Larimer County Sheriff, and held the office of Fort Collins Chief of Police for 25 years. In 1974, he was interviewed by Jonathan Anderson, and the resulting “Boot Leggers, Cattle Rustlers, College Students, and Ordinary Drunks – Thirty-Three Years in Law Enforcement” is a short but fascinating look at some of the history of local law and order. (The men are, from left to right, Bill Gray, Ray Barger, Frank Monroe, and Sheriff O.P. Kelley, circa 1929. Picture from Fort Collins History Connection.)

Where in Fort Collins was this week's picture taken?
