OBSOLETE 1950s-era Missouri State Highway Patrol Uniform Shirt/Pants Gelhaar DD. This OBSOLETE Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) uniform includes (1) shirt and (1) pants. According to the tags, it was made by Gelhaar Uniform Company in Kansas City, Missouri and it was issued on July 1, 1957. The shirt has several plastic buttons, (1) American Red Cross First Aid Patch, and (1) period MSHP shoulder patch.
This shirt has an added shirt tail. The shirt and pants in this set do include size tags, but since they are almost 70 years old they could have shank. As such, I have not tried to measure these items and suggest that they are best for display and not for wearing. The man who wore this uniform was an approximately 6'2 tall World.War II-veteran from Kansas City Missouri named Harold Spencer King. After he left the military he worked as a police officer for a short time before joining the MSHP. He left the MSHP in the late 1950s to work as a private investigator for a local law firm.
