A controversial figure of the Old West, Dr. John Henry Holliday – better known as “Doc” Holliday – began his life in Georgia in 1851. He trained as a dentist before heading to the West. He suffered personally and professionally because of tuberculosis, and often supported himself as a gambler and dealer at card tables.
He’s perhaps best remembered as one of the gunmen at the O.K. Corral shootout in Tombstone, Arizona.
