NEWS-HERALD & JOURNAL Birth of a newspaper [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
NEWS-HERALD &amp; JOURNAL Birth of a newspaper By the late Charles H. Randall Second Publisher of HP Herald (Reprinted from the July 2, 1930 News-Herald) The story of the quarter-cen-tennial anniversary of the Highland Park News-Herald might easily be made to read like a romance of the western frontier; The paper was acquired by the writer when Highland Park’s business center consisted of a post office in a little wooden structure on N. Ave. 57, just off Pasadena Ave., in charge of Robert Stewart, a pioneer; of Reed and Manker’s livery stable in the 5800 block on Pasadena Ave., and of a small grocery store at Ave. 57 and Pasadena Ave. G. W. E. Griffith, another pioneer, was about to establish a bank, and did so a few weeks later. A bank and a newspaper go well together, especially if the banker is friendly to the editor. Griffith was my friend and still is. The newspaper was successful! FROM BLACK HILLS I came to California in October, 1904, direct from Deadwood in the Black...
Stranger and bogus bill (Re-print from Nov. 27, 1916 HP Herald) [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Stranger and bogus bill (Re-print from Nov. 27, 1916 HP Herald) A pleasant-faced stranger walked into the Candy Shop last Tuesday afternoon and purchased several packages of chewing gum. He tendered a ten-dollar bill to Mr. Dixon, proprietor of the establishment, in payment for his purchase and was given his change in good, cold cash. Later in the day it was discovered that the greenback was entirely worthless and had been raised from a smaller amount. Reports state that a man resembling the description of this same stranger worked the trick on a candy store in South Pasadena on the evening of the same day. It is said that he had a ten-dollar bill changed there also.

Spring In fhe Highlands When flowers crowned Poppy Pesk [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Spring In fhe Highlands When flowers crowned Poppy Pesk By WILFRID DELLQEEST The most magnificent flower display in northeastern Los Angeles took place each spring when Poppy Peak put on her Easter bonnet of California Golden Poppies. The highest elevation in the San Rafael area, rising nearly eleven hundred feet above the level of the sea, Poppy Peak’s radiant crown of golden fire could be seen for many miles. When caravels from Castile churned along the California coast, Spanish sailors sometimes looked landward and saw the fading sun of dusk angle its slanting rays on the flower-decked summit of Poppy Peak. Like molten gold flowing down the slopes of a mountain top, Poppy Peak was God’s glory in the kingdom of the Dons. “Madre Dios!” the sailors cried, "but it is beautiful." The land in those days was lush. It was green and peaceful. Watered by wild streams and natural springs, the hills were covered with toyon, the California holly; the laurel sumac and the spreading oaks. Yucca...

In 1923 I built my home in South Pasadena and thus became very familiar with the Highland Park area. To know Highland Park is to love it. It does not take one long to appreciate the many advantages, sincere people, and friendly atmosphere that Highland Park has to offer. I consider February 15, 1929, one of the happiest days of my life. It was on this day I bought Chile Ville restaurant. At that time the business operated 24 hours a day; and it was during World War II that it became necessary to put locks on the doors and close them from 1 to 6 a.m. to conserve food points. Many people consider Chile Ville a landmark in Highland Park. In fact it was not uncommon for motor-men on the street car line to call out “Chile-Ville Junction.” Man...

When the Los Angeles &amp; San Gabriel Railroad, later to become part of the Santa Fe, laid the first tracks through the Highland Park area in 1885, the sleepy hillsides little knew what was to come! Highland Park was founded three years later...and, in 1895, was one of the early communities to join even-then-growing Los Angeles. Occidental College, in its original location, was founded there in 1898...in the same year that electricity first came to the Highland Park district! Later, in 1903, L. A. Pacific College was founded; and, in 1906, the Highland Park Bank. But early history is only groundwork for this city that, despite its growth, has retained its identity as a delightful residential area. Seventy-five years encompass a lot of growing. To the thriving and happy city that is Highland Park today...congratulations on your Diamond Jubilee! Automobile Club of Southern California HMMNn -- M --/ XI piipj - 'm &gt; WJ m msm I m i. 1 ♦ »I
Public spirit builds library [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 17 October 1963
Public spirit builds library One of the finest examples of public spirit in the history of Los Angeles was shown in 1913 when $5680 was raised by popular subscription in Highland Park, several hundred people contributing, and the triangular piece of land, 360 by 135 by 290 feet, on which stands the beautiful Arroyo S e c o branch of the Los Angeles Public Library was bought and presented to the city for use as a site for the library building. This movement was started by a committee composed of Dr. John Lawrence Smith, William Miller and Thomas Fellows. The history of branch libraries in this city began 33 years ago, when the main library was 25 years old. In 1897, the library was housed in rooms in the old City Hall, and three reading rooms were established in the Castelar, Macy and Aurelin Street Schools. The same year the first delivery station was opened in a rented room at 1952 East First St., and this Boyle Heights station is the first that developed into a branch library. It ...

HP Police station here since 1925 Policemen were making $l7O a month when Highland Park got its first police station back in 1925. Before that the area was served by the Eagle Rock Division then located at 2336 Colorado Blvd. The change in the name to Highland Park Division came with the new building at 6045 York Blvd. 50 POLICE In those days 50 policemen patroled the 7.76 square miles of the Highland Park division and its 50,000 residents. Today the station is manned by 118 officers, covering an area of 23.2 miles and protecting 1C 000 residents. First commander of the station when it was still in Eagle Rock was Capt. J. J.

Others down through the years were Captains Weyerman, McCaleb, Willian Zink, Fulton, Cornwall, Hagenbaugh, and the present commander, Capt. A 1 Tremblay. Chief of detectives is Lt. Charles...
