Historia biográfica

John Harland Horner (1870-1953) was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and moved to Enterprise, Oregon, in 1911. A life-long bachelor, he served as Wallowa County's deputy assessor from 1918 to 1924, before being elected county assessor in 1924. Horner also had a long-standing interest in the history of Wallowa County. For more than thirty years, he collected historical information and interviewed most of the area's early settlers and local Native Americans. His research resulted in an unpublished manuscript of more than 1,500 pages titled Wallowa River and Valley. Horner committed suicide on July 13, 1953, at the age of 83
