Edward Keeylocko

Edward Keeylocko was a Vietnam and Korean War Veteran, Arizona cattle rancher, cowboy storyteller and founder of Cowtown Keeylocko, an 80 acre ranch 40 miles southwest of Tucson. After experiencing racial discrimination from white ranchers when he brought his herd to auction in the 1970's, he built his own town as a place to market his cattle and as a tribute to the western way of life. Edward Keeylocko passed away at age 87. This is a look back at our story from 1995.
