Why the Barrows are so famous

Texas has had many colorful characters in it long history, but none have so fired the imagination and grabbed the attention of common people as these two young outlaws – Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker. My first recollection of hearing about the daring exploits of the couple from Dallas was listening to my father and various uncles as they recounted the murders, robberies, and kidnapping reported in the newspapers. One uncle worked with Clyde when both young men were employed at Procter and Gamble, the giant soap maker in Dallas.
