P.G. Youth Hangs Self in his Home
Clayton Buffum, 22-year-old wireless operator of Pacific Grove, known to wireless fans all over the world by his call 6 BOL, hanged himself from the rafters of his workshop in the rear of his father’s home on Twentieth street this afternoon. Ill health is understood to have been the cause of his act. The boy’s father, Clem Buffum, a carpenter, found the body of his son. It was still warm. A physician was immediately called but the youth was dead. Young Buffum was a wireless operator of no mean ability, possessing a government license to operate the powerful transmitting station he had erected at his home. He had received messages and had talked with stations in practically all parts of the world, it is said, and was well known to wireless fans. Young Buffum was a graduate of the Pacific Grove High School.
