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.


IB Hale served as President of ASIS in 1969-1970 and Chairman of the Board in 1970-1971. Hale suffered a sudden heart attack and passes away while serving in this capacity. His prior service to ASIS included the office of Regional Vice President-Southwestern Region; Chairman, Speaker’s Committee (1960 Seminar); Fire Protection Committee (9165-66); and General Chairman-14th Annual Seminar and Exhibits in Fort Worth.

As in every project he undertook, Hale dedicated himself completely to the goals of ASIS. A graduate of Texas Christian University, Hale was named for All-American honors as a tackle and captain of the 1938 TCU football team.

Hale served the FBI for 11 years during which his expertise in firearms led to his role as an instructor. He was rated as a master by the National Rifle Association and won the International Individual Pistol Championship in 1946.

Born Insall Bailey Hale, September 9, 1916, in Elmont, Texas, IB Hale devoted his life to the professionalism of the industry through his activities in ASIS, his career with the FBI, and in his capacity as Manager of Industrial Security with General Dynamics, Forth Worth Division.
