James Henry McClintock (1864-1934) was an American teacher, journalist, volunteer cavalry officer in Roosevelt's Rough Riders, civil servant, radio broadcaster, author and historian.
He arrived in Arizona in June, 1879, on one of the first passenger trains into Phoenix, Maricopa County. He came to join his brother, Charles E. McClintock, the publisher of the Phoenix Herald. He later moved to Tempe, where he became a Justice of the Peace.
In 1898, he became a Troop Commander with Theodore Roosevelt's Rough Riders, but missed the Battle of San Juan Hill due to being seriously wounded in June, 1898, at Guasimas, Cuba.
He returned to Arizona and was appointed a Colonel in the First Arizona Infantry. He later became the Postmaster of Phoenix. He wrote for magazines and other publications, and was the editorial representative in Arizona for the Los Angeles Times. He took a special interest in archaeological research and Arizona folklore, later becoming the president of the Arizona Folklore Association. Poor health eventually forced him to move to Los Angeles, where he died in May, 1934.
