Notes:  In 1870, Cam was 20 years old, living at home, and studing law.  His father was a prominent lawyer.

In 1886, Cam held the position of Clerk at the Pyramid Reservation.  He lived on the Indian reservation near Carson City, Nevada.

On 17 Apr 1888, it was reported that C. Whitthorne, sent as clerk to the Pyramid Lake Reservation about two years since, and afterwards appointed Farmer, left on Sunday night to accept the position of clerk to the Mescalero Apache Indians in New Mexico.

Cam later moved to Vallejo, California, where he was appointed the "Chief Clerk of the Labor Board" for the Mare Island Navy Yard.  The following newspaper article illustrates one of his duties:

  • Vallejo, Nov. 11 (1893)—The tug Fearless of San Francisco visited the navy-yard at Mare Island this afternoon having a party of distinguished excursionists on board.  The party in the main consisted of about 150 members of the Democratic Business Men's Association of San Francisco, and a large number of their personal lady friends.  At the navy-yard the party was met by Hon. Cam Whitthorne of Vallejo, who welcomed the excursionists and whose guests the party remained during their stay at the navy-yard.
        As soon as a landing was made the entire party was escorted on board the monitors Monterey and Monadnock, both of which were moored alongside the quay wall.  An hour was spent in inspecting the two monitors . . . .

After Cam's first wife Amanda died at age 24 or 26, he married Mary (Mammie) P. Gallagher, nee Wise, who had two sons:  Tommy and Stanton.

By 1920, Camp had moved to San Francisco where he was an Appraiser for the U.S. Customs service.

On 1 Jan 1922, Cam resigned as Appraiser and was transferred to the Navy Department and put on the pension list.

By 1930, Cam was retired from government service, was living in San Francisco at 620 Second Avenue, and was registered to vote as a Democrat.  His name did not appear in 1932 or subsequent voter rolls.
