William Hunsaker

One of the forgotten men of the OK Corral hearing was William Hunsaker. He was the law partner of the celebrated Tom Fitch—but he had his own credentials as well. After the Tombstone event, Hunsaker moved back to California to become first district attorney and then mayor of San Diego. Later, he was one of the most high-profile attorneys in California as well as a major figure in the legal field. Hunsaker also maintained ties with his Tombstone friends; he served as a pallbearer at Wyatt Earp’s funeral in 1929.
