Elmer McCurdy and Bill Doolin were outlaws back around the time Oklahoma statehood. Elmer became somewhat famous AFTER he died and was actually involved in the filming of an episode of the “Six Million Dollar Man” in the 1970’s. Doolin was famous as a member of the Dalton gang. They are buried side-by-side in the Boot Hill section of a cemetery in Guthrie. I was working mapping a dual sport route through rural Logan county and stopped by these graves to mark the spot, and shot this photo with my Toyo VX-125 film camera. The scene was backlit so I exposed for the gravestones. For more information on the two outlaws click the links above.
