John Henry “Doc” Holliday was born into a high class southern family in 1851. He was born into a family with high expectations, and attended college in Philadelphia and opened a dental practice at a respectable young age. Unfortunately, Holliday’s accomplishments were overshadowed when he was diagnosed with tuberculosis. After he found out he was sick, he moved further out west, hoping the clean air would improve his health.
Although he was highly educated, he was a quick tempered young man and was even quicker with a firearm. Once he realized he had a talent for gambling, practicing dentistry didn’t seem so important anymore, and so began his new life as a gambler and saloon owner. He was best known for his friendship with U.S. Marshal Wyatt Earp, who fought alongside him during the legendary gunfight at O.K. Corral in Tombstone, AZ. He was also known for his on and off again relationship with prostitute Big Nose Kate Cummings. Even today, it’s pretty hard to believe that a physically ill dentist would become one of the most iconic gunfighters of his day.
