Table of contents What's This?
Clum was an Arizona Pioneer and Apache Indian agent at San Carlos. This collection contains manuscripts by John P. Clum, and newspaper clippings about John P. Clum, ranging from 1928 to 1957.
John Philip Clum (1851 September 1 - 1932 May 2) was an Indian agent for the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in the Arizona Territory. He implemented a limited form of self-government on the reservation that was so successful that other reservations were closed and their residents moved to San Carlos. Clum later became the first mayor of Tombstone, Arizona Territory, after its incorporation in 1881. He also founded the still-operating "The Tombstone Epitaph" on May 1, 1880.
