GLEN O. WILSON, "Old Red River Station," is an attorney and
local historian of Nocona. His interest in the Red River area
surrounding Nocona and Wichita Falls is of long standing and

might otherwise have been irreparably lost. Red River Station
and the development of the cattle industry have particularly
occupied the writer's attention.
