Abstract: The conventional opinion of the activities and character of Wyatt Earp have been different in different eras since the Earp–Clanton Feud of 1879–1882. The 1931 publication of Stuart N. Lake’s "Wyatt Earp, Frontier Marshal" established a reputation for Wyatt Earp as a fearless law enforcement hero. This iconic figure has been revered or damned by various authors espousing a wide variety of opinions about his activities and character. This presentation will review historical fact, major books and films and television program about him. Family life, motivations and justifications will be discussed.
