History of South Pasadena A hundred years and growing [Newspaper Article] — South Pasadena Journal — 2 March 1988
History of South Pasadena A hundred years and growing By Sally Clouse Early in 1888 a group of citizens of an area just south of die recently incorporated city of Pasadena met in Mohr and Graham’s Open House block for the purpose of discussing incorporation. The greatest motivation for the meetings came from the fact that Pasadena had incorporated as a dry city, and the saloons moved out of the city into the area south. Citizens, alarmed at this development, organized to correct it. In order to be incorporated as a city of the sixth class, a community had to have 100 voters. To get the required number of voters, the limits of the area were extended to the then East Lake Park. On Feb. 25, 1888, the election was held, and incorporation became a matter of record with the Secretary of State on March 2,1888. The name San Pasqual was considered for the new city, since the area which became the city had been the Rancho Sanf Pasqual, or Easterday Ranch. However, Pasadena was achieving some ...
Birthday wishes to city from former mayors [Newspaper Article] — South Pasadena Journal — 2 March 1988
Birthday wishes to city from former mayors In honor of the South Pasadena city centennial, some of the former mayors of the city, along with current mayor, Jim Hodge, have offered their ‘ ‘message to the city” upon its 100 th birthday: MAYOR JIM HODGE “Today, South Pasadena turns 100 years old. I have always held that a birthday is not really such a great accomplisment. It merely represents an ability to stay in existence for another year. As a matter of fact, I become more firm in this belief with each of my own birthdays! What really matters is the condition one is in at the end of each year. South Pasadena, like most small cities, has been subject to many influences from outside its boundaries. These forces, if left unopposed, have demonstrated an ability to strip a city of its character, rendering it undistinguishable from its neighbors. I am proud to say that in South Pasadena that is not the case. A century ago, one city was well separated from another; each had its own specia...
Ostrich farm put city on the map [Newspaper Article] — South Pasadena Journal — 2 March 1988
Ostrich farm put city on the map By Sally Clouse Edwin Cawston placed a full page ad in the Chamber of Commerce book “South Pasadena California, Its History, Advantages, Industries, Schools, Churches, Social and Religious Life, General Information,” published in 1911. The ad is headed: “Only One Cawston Ostrich Farm” and describes the farm as follows: “The original, the pioneer, the greatest and largest of all its kind, the Cawston Ostrich Farm is one of the institutions of Southern California, and there is hardly a traveler or tourist who has visited Los Angeles but has admired this unique and interesting establishment. In fact, the name of the Cawston Ostrich Farm has become so identified with Southern California that in every part of the world the mention of one suggests the other. “Located in South Pasadena, it occupies a picturesque and beautiful semi-tropical park of its own, and here, amid flowers, palms and shrubbery, the California ostrich lives and thrives, and is the obje...

Margaret Graham— a feminist by instinct [Newspaper Article] — South Pasadena Journal — 2 March 1988
Margaret Graham — a feminist by instinct By Charles Cooper Margaret Collier Graham was apparently a feminist by instinct as well as by training. The lowa-bom writer and teacher found more than a few chances to live up to her ideas in her 60 eventful years of life. A graduate of Monmouth College in Illinois at the age of 19, four years later she married classmate Donald Graham. The Grahams soon came to Southern California for Graham’s health, living first in Pasadena, then in East Los Angeles and finally in South Pasadena, where Graham was that city’s first mayor. The family experienced prosperity during the boom years of the 1880’s, joining with others to buy and subdivide the Laguna Ranch. Mrs. Graham is credited with reaching into Shakespeare, in particular Hamlet, to name a lake and medicinal hot springs on the property. She called it Elsinore. Mrs. Graham had taught school when the family lived in East Los Angeles, but abandoned that when the Graham fortunes took an upswing, whi...
Remembering three pioneers [Newspaper Article] — South Pasadena Journal — 2 March 1988
Remembering three pioneers By Charles Cooper Donald and Margaret Graham and Margaret’s sister Jennie Collier were following a soon-to-be familiar pattern when they came to California in the late 1870’s; college educated mid-Westerners, with Donald Graham needing a dry warm climate for his health, their pioneer journey to the new frontier was taken by railroad and steamer. Eleven years later, Donald Graham was one of the organizers of cityhood for South Pasadena, president of its first board of trustees (the equivalent of mayor) and before his early and untimely death in 1890, the builder of Wynyate, still the great mansion of the city. Mary Helen Wayne, grandniece of the Grahams and Jennie Collier, has preserved their story in a book, We Three Came West, edited by herself and her cousin Helen Raitt and published in 1974, and in numerous talks to organizations around the area. Wayne, also the niece of Southern California historian W.W. Robinson, maintains a strong relationship to Sou...

Growth of schools part of history [Newspaper Article] — South Pasadena Journal — 2 March 1988
Growth of schools part of history These past months, attention has been focused on the history of South Pasadena, and citizens are justly proud of their community. Many threads make up the warp and woof of the history of this city, and a definite pattern is evident in the progress of South Pasadena schools. There is the ever-increasing need for more land, and more adequate buildings to meet the ever-increas-ing school population and to provide better education for South Pasadena’s children. Along with this has been a corps of dedicated people willing to work toward the accomplishment of these goals. Schooling was an important concern 10 years before South Pasadena was incorporated. The first school board to serve this area was elected on January 26, 1878, and five weeks later, on March 5, Bessie Harris began teaching in a home, at a salary of $5O per month. No funds for salary were available, and it was after the closing of the school term in late June that a subscription was raised...
