Barker, S. Omar: S. Omar Barker Pulp Sampler. V1. 12 Oct 2011
Squire Omar Barker, sometimes know affectionately as just that "S.O.B.", was born near Beulah, New Mexico on June 16, 1894. He died on April 1, 1985. He attended high school in Las Vegas, NM. He also graduated from New Mexico Highlands University in Las Vegas. He and Elliott Barker were brothers, but Omar was the last of the 11 in the litter.
Barker may be best remembered for his poems, "A Cowboy's Christmas Prayer"(even recorded by Jimmy Dean on a Christmas album) and "Code of the Cow Country". He received a Spur Award in 1955 for his short story, "Bad Company". And in 1966 he received his second Spur, this time for his poem, "Empty Saddles at Christmas."
