Squirrel Tooth Alice

Squirrel Tooth Alice
Date: Between 1870 and 1880
A studio portrait of Squirrel Tooth Alice. Born Mary Elizabeth "Libby" Haley in Belton, Texas, in 1855, she ran away from home as a teen and became a dance hall girl first in Abilene, Kansas, and later Ellsworth and Dodge City. She eventually settled in Sweetwater, Texas, where she owned and operated a brothel and dancehall until 1921. Her unusual nickname was derived from her professional alias, Alice, a small gap in her front teeth, and her fondness for prairie dogs, which she kept as pets.
