Ralph Lee/ Portland Morning Oregonian

This drawing by Ralph Lee accompanied Herbert Lundy's article in the Portland Morning Oregonian in 1939. It shows the artist's rendering of Lucius Langdon shooting neighbors A.H. Crooks and Stephen Jory on March 15, 1882 - the killing that touched off two years of D.I.Y. law enforcement in the Prineville area by the masked riders and lynch mobs who called themselves The Vigilantes.
