Arizona Biographies





EVAN HARRY BARKDOLL, Superintendent of Mines of the Old Dominion Copper Mining & Smelting Company, and the 'United Globe mines of Globe, was born June 27th, 1876, at Gallatin, Daviess County, Missouri. He came to Arizona in 1891, and since that time has devoted his energies very nearly exclusively to the mining industry, and has met with an exceptional degree of success in this field, his services having been such as to merit advancement. After some time working in Jerome for the Clark interests, Mr. Barkdoll and his associates prospected and mined in Yavapai County until the spring of 1896. From there Mr. Barkdoll went to Bisbee, where he entered the employ of the Copper Queen Consolidated Mining Company as a miner, continuing in that capacity until 1901. Several months of that year he was engaged in mining in Tuolumne County, California. In 1902 he reentered the employ of the Copper Queen Consolidated Mining Company as a miner, continuing this work until he was promoted to the position of timberman. From this time his promotion was continuous, and he has successively been shift boss and foreman of several mines, and was then appointed assistant to the mine superintendent. During the past year, on the resignation of Mr. George Kingdom, Mr. Barkdoll was chosen his successor, and was transferred to Globe to take his present position. Mr. Barkdoll is a Democrat, and has taken considerable interest in the party. Mr. Barkdoll is a member of several different branches of the Masonic order. He was married to Miss Blanche Wright at Bisbee in March 1902, and they have one son, Ivan Harry, Jr. They now reside in Globe.
