Biographical Sketch

Almon A. Locke (1844-1925) was born in Rhode Island to Reverend Ezekiel J. and Chloe Locke. Mr. Locke was devoted to the humane treatment of animals and humane subjects. To promote the kind treatment of animals, he wrote articles that appeared in the Fort Worth Record, the Fort Worth Telegram, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the St. Louis Chronicle, and the Texas State Humane Journal. He helped found the Humane Society at Fort Worth and served as President of the Texas State Humane Society. To ensure future generations treated animals kindly, Mr. Locke donated $10,000 to make sure humane education was taught in the public schools.
