Title Page542
Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION Charles C. Goodwin was accorded the respectful title "Judge" during his long journalistic career in Utah. It was a reflection of his three-year term as an elected District Judge in Washoe County, Nevada. That, however, was but one of his alter-ego's. He had also been a miner, a school teacher and a published author. Born April 4, 1832 on his family's farm near Rochester, New York, he received his early education in the academies of that city. The glamour of the California gold strikes when he was still a teen-ager prompted him to become a "49er." He sailed to Panama, crossed the isthmus, survived "Panama fever," which was fatal to many, endured a perilous voyage on the Pacific Ocean and finally reached San Francisco. But he didn't become a prospector. Instead, settling in the gold strike area at Marysville, he went into the lumber business. Five years later, when he'd built up a sizeable concern, his plant was swept by fire; a total loss. Displaying what contemporaries called "his hopeful disposition, something characteristic of the man," he started over. While teaching school he also studied law and later practiced his profession in Plumus County. Goodwin then moved to Nevada. Mining still held a fascination for him and he operated in many of the liveliest of the state's silver camps. It was in Virginia City during the boom days of the Comstock Lode that he launched his journalistic career as editor of the famed Territorial Enterprise. There he was associated with men whose names subsequently became internationally famous - Mackay, Fair, Flood, Sharon and a hundred more. His reminisces teem with interesting accounts of all of them. In his immediate environment in the Enterprise office were Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Dan DeQuille, Joseph T. Goodman, R. M. Daggett and a host of others little less famous - some staff for a mining camp newspaper! 542
