Those familiar with Goodfellow's name, "surgeon to the gunfighters" is probably the phrase that comes to mind. He was in Tombstone during the cowboy "troubles," and operated successfully on U.S. Deputy Marshal Virgil Earp, but could only stand by and watch Morgan Earp die from gunshot wounds. He performed surgery on dozens of gunshot victims. His reputation as expert in this regard was gained on the Arizona-Sonora frontier in one of the nation's turbulent eras.
