R.A Clark owned a barbershop in Canyon City in the early 1900s.
He was known for wearing a derby hat. He also wore a toupee.
Clint Haight owned the newspaper, the Blue Mountain Eagle. He had a son, also named Clint, who grew up here.
One afternoon, Clint stole into Clark’s barbershop and removed the derby hat from the hat rack and applied a circle of glue to the hat’s crown. The next time Clark took off his hat, along came his toupee.
