Women and the Rangers: Mothers, Wives & Daughters - Part 1


Women and the Rangers: Mothers, Wives, & Daughters. The words “Texas Ranger” do not usually call to mind the picture of a woman, yet women have played an important part in the history of the Rangers. They have been mothers and grandmothers, sisters and daughters, sweethearts and wives, aunts and nieces, friends and foes. Women were also commissioned as Special Rangers in the 1920s – 1940s, with one even commissioned to serve as a Mansion Guard at the governor’s mansion, a task often performed by Regular Rangers at that time. Today, two women serve in the active Ranger force in Company “D” in San Antonio and and Company “F” in Waco. It is to all of the women who have given their love and support to the Texas Rangers since 1823 that this exhibit is dedicated.
