Climbing 'family tree' [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 8 October 1977
Climbing 'family tree' This is the year of our “Roots” and no one in Northeast Los Angeles knows better how to climb a family tree than Mrs. Joseph Northrop, of Eagle Rock, who recently served as genealogy chairman of the conference of California Historical Societies. An avid “ancestor buff”, she has traveled widely to seek out the most remote branch of a family tree. All this is done under great handicap since she suffers from Muscular dystrophy, an ailment that would have grounded a woman with less determination.

| Highland Park’s 100 th anniversary t From ranch days to the space age Although the curtain was officially raised on Highland Park as a residential suburb of Los Angeles during the 1880’s, the background story begins years earlier in the Rancho San Rafael, owned by the Verdugo •‘family. It was in 1870 that two pioneer Southern California investors, Andrew Glassell and A.C. Chapman, purchased what is now Highland Park from the Verdugo interests for one dollar per acre, and promptly leased the land for sheep grazing. In ijtbc year 1871, some 15,000 sheep ;|*razed on the hills and valleys of Jurtiat is now Highland Park.

‘Short walk’ brought community remarkable man, Charles Lummis [Newspaper Article] — Highland Park News-Herald & Journal — 31 August 1988
‘Short walk’ brought community remarkable man, Charles Lummis Charles Fletcher Lummis, author, librarian and historian, remains to this day one of the most remarkable figures in the hundred year history of Highland Park. Born in Lynn, Massachusetts and educated at Harvard University, where he became a friend of future president Theodore Roosevelt, Lummis was a colorful and controversial figure from the time of his arrival in Los Angeles after a “short walk” of 3507 miles. His hike from Cincinnati, Ohio, which he called “the longest walk for pure pleasure on record,” was chronicled in a series of letters to the fledgling Los Angeles Times.

His account of his trip was published as A Tramp Across the Continent. A physical breakdown while on the job at the Times led Lummis to successfully battle the effects of a paralytic stroke. He recovered out in th...
