Meet Martin Aguirre, one of the most fascinating figures I have come across in quite a while. He was a bailiff in courtroom of Judge George Hutton in the Clarence Darrow trial, and led a most interesting life, having been warden at San Quentin, a constable and  sheriff. He never carried a gun, preferring a Bowie knife.  Among his many heroic acts was saving 19 people during the 1886 flood of the Los Angeles River.
