Comments / picturesThe pride of Carmack Watkins' collection is the head, actually both heads of Black Diamond, the most famous killer elephant in Texas history.

Black Diamond was a pachyderm with a temper. Weighing almost six tons, reportedly the tallest elephant in captivity, he was also reportedly a killer, with three human corpses to his credit, when he went insane in the Al Barnes Circus parade in Corsicana on October 12, 1929. The reason behind his murderous rampage is obscure, but the most colorful account has it that Black Diamond was passionately jealous, and that when he saw his trainer, H.D. "Curley" Pritchett, talking with a woman, he went berserk and killed her.
