John P. Clum
Served as Indian Agent at the San Carlos Indian Reservation in Arizona, from 1874 to 1877. In 1874, as Indian Agent, he established the first Tribal Police and Tribal Court, on the San Carlos Reservation.

While in Tombstone, John Clum was its first Mayor, and Founder and Publisher of the “Tombstone Epitaph.” He also founded the “Tucson Citizen” newspaper in that town. Clum and Wyatt Earp were best of friends, joining in many gun battles with cattle rustlers and “bad men.” Clum was a witness of the “shoot-out at the O.K.Corral” between the Earps and the Clantons.

He moved to Los Angeles in 1928 and died there in 1932.
