Allan Pinkerton’s name is synonymous with the Pinkerton Detective Agency and hard men who tracked train robbers across the West to deliver frontier justice. During the agency’s 150-year history–a legacy that continues to this day–the agents known as “Pinks” or “Pinkertons” or other more colorful names became involved in cases requiring investigation, surveillance, or other undercover projects, including fighting against a cause Allan once fought for. Even the agency’s logo has exerted an influence on our society by cementing forever in our language the term “private eye.”
