LA Research: Late to this thread.

It is a linkage I started to look into recently too. I went through most of the thread, but didn't see John Clum's name. He was significant in local LA circa the 20s and 30s. he made his way there and settled in his old age and became friends with LA newspaper writer, Harry Nace. Nace wrote human interest and history pieces for a column in the LA Times and longer pieces for their Sunday Magazine. A good example of his work can be seen in the LA Times, dated 26 April 1931, page 130. It gives a good review of Tombstone in the early thirties. He, Clum and others took a car trip from LA to PHX, then south to the San Carlos Res and to Tuscon, ending up in Tombstone. It's an interesting read; he also did many pieces on various southwest history subjects too. Check him out.

          I would hope Clum's descendant(s) , last I remember living in Santa Monica, might help some.

      The Doheny connection is intriguing. Ed's last remaining grandchild passed away in L.A. a few years ago and received good news coverage. There was some influence from Ed and later generations here in ... more

        Where are John Clum's papers? I thought somewhere back east, right?
