Diamond was a city employee, a white horse that was used by the public works department in its tasks relating to taking care of the grounds at Old Camden Cemetery and New Camden Cemetery.

Diamond made the papers in August of 1935 and again in the summer of 1936, when he needed to be treated by veterinarian Dr. David Helm, who also served as Camden's Sanitary Inspector.
