Arizona Biographies





ALVAN W. HOWE, Deputy Sheriff of Cochise County, though not a native of Arizona, has been a resident of Dear Old Cochise since he was but eight years old, when the family removed to the Territory. While still a young man, he is one of the oldest peace officers in point of service in Arizona, and has taken more people to the penitentiary and to the insane asylum than any other officer in the State. Mr. Howe was born in Chicago November 25, 1873, and October 8, 1881. landed in Tombstone. His parents, Henry G. and Louise Willett Howe, were among the pioneers of Tombstone, and the former was for many years Surveyor of Cochise County. A mining and civil engineer by profession, he practiced in Arizona many years, and helped in the location of many of the greatest mines. The first daily paper started in Bisbee, The Daily Orb, was the property of Allie Howe, and later being consolidated with The Review, became one of the strongest papers in Arizona. After having completed the course in the public schools of Arizona, Allie went to Pomona College, where he spent three years taking a special course. He has held numerous positions in the court house, but is best known as a Deputy Sheriff, having held a commission under every Sheriff during the past seventeen years. Mr. Howe was married at Bisbee in July, 1902, to Miss Ella Sheppard, a native of San Francisco, whose parents had moved to that place. They make their home in Tombstone.
