AW Merrick

Played by Jeffrey Jones

There's no shortage of news in Deadwood, and chronicling the shootings, the claim-jumpings and the occasional good deed is the responsibility of AW Merrick. The editor (and reporter) for the Pioneer, Merrick has a knack for showing up when something big is about to happen. Because he's always taking notes, many of the residents of Deadwood look upon Merrick with distrust.
