Halff of Texas

by Dearen, Patrick


Mayer Halff immigrated to Texas as a fourteen-year-old, got his start as a foot peddler, and eventually controlled a vast cattle empire. Throughout his life, he was at ease whether dining with a U.S. president at a plush metropolitan banquet or squatting across a campfire form a dirt-streaked cowboy in some forsaken cow camp. One of those cowhands, Bob Beverly, perhaps best described Halff's spirit: "He was a pioneer and always built for the future. He was the kind that made this the greatest republic the world has ever known . . . I take my hat off to him and his kind."
