Tony Neis, Detective

Harold Gordon was kind enough to share this find of his, a business card he discovered in a collection of Victorian-era Masonic calling cards.

Tony Neis was the man who recruited Sam and Lou into the Rocky Mountain Detective Association when he established an Albuquerque office in 1882. Their membership in the group appears to have been short-lived, but we do know this: on the day they became members, Lou arrested and secured a confession from a man who stole some $200 in goods from—Tony Neis.
