Wallace Wright Wolfram lived 1908-1988, born in MA and died in NM. His residency was entirely in MA until WWII. That suggests that his holster career in CA and NM was entirely post war. And THAT suggests that the hammer guard was first seen on Myres holsters that bear the 'TEX' marking. Wally was a Monrovia police officer in the early Fifties and by the Sixties has founded Wolfram Leather Co. with someone who appears to be his second wife. Another reference indicates that Neale Perkins and Safariland acquired Wolfram Leather first; before it was acquired by Smith & Wesson (remember that Safariland was created in 1965 out of the remains of Safari Ltd.) around 1969.
