Hi Jane,

I'm here in NY so you have a much better chance of research than I do. I suggest you check out the U of Az in both Phoenix, and Tucson, also AHS in Tucson. The Tombstone court house is supposed to have a nice collection.

For books I recommend:
Ride the Devil's Herd - John Boessenecker
When Law Was in the Holster - John Boessenecker
Wyatt Earp - Casey Tefertiller
Doc Holliday - Gary Roberts
Murder in Tombstone - Steven Lubet
Wyatt Earp Anthology- edited by Young, Roberts & Tefertiller

There are hundreds if not thousands, of other books on the Earps but these are some I've found most useful.

I've ordered Roy's Newton book. He has quite a few other books on the period.

    Hi Gail, Thank you so much for telling me all of that information about Newton Earp...I don’t have much knowledge of the Earps, and I’m out in Phoenix, so for years I made plans to do research and never... more
