2. Ray Hillman: Shedding light on Old Town's Colorful Past. The Eureka Reporter's 2005 article on local historian Ray Hillman, who relates a number of interesting stories. Hillman relates the story of the 1910 fight between Jack London and Stanwood Murphy, the owner of the Pacific Lumber Company. The story is based upon a 1966 letter by Eureka resident W.J. "Hap" Waters, who is said to have witnessed the event. According to Waters, the argument started over politics, with the fighting lasting over an hour and both parties being taken to the hospital. Waters indicated that the incident never made the newspapers because of the prestige of both men and that it was a "hush-hush affair". (Submitted on October 13, 2012.)
