About Insall Bailey "I.B." Hale

Insall Bailey "I. B." Hale (September 9, 1916 – May 14, 1971) was an American football offensive tackle at Texas Christian University who was voted an All-American. He was drafted in the first round of the 1939 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, but never played football professionally.

He was married to the former Virginia Kingsbery, and the couple had at least two sons (twins Robert Allen Hale and William Hale). Hale became an FBI agent in Fort Worth, Texas and was a close associate of J. Edgar Hoover. Later he became chief of security for Convair aircraft factory and General Dynamics, and was a chairman of ASIS International. Hale died of a heart attack in 1971.

Hale was best friends with Heisman winner Davey O'Brien, who played football with him at Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, Texas and also at TCU. They both worked for the FBI.

Hale was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.
