The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral is the best-known, yet least understood
event in the history of the Wild West. On October 26, 1881, a thirty-second
shootout blasted its way onto the pages of history and gained worldwide
notoriety. Drawing on original resources and professional research, this
presentation explores characters, from the major players—the Earps, Clantons,
and Doc Holliday—to editors, authors, outlaws, and capitalists.

Presented by Jim Turner.  Before retiring from the Arizona Historical
Society, Jim worked with more than 70 museums in every corner of the
state. He is co-author of the 4th-grade textbook The Arizona Story, and
his pictorial history book, Arizona: Celebration of the Grand Canyon State, contains
more than 530 images. Jim moved to Tucson in 1951, earned a masters degree in
U.S. history from the University of Arizona, and has been researching and
teaching Arizona history for more than 35 years.
