Every once in a while I get to share my discoveries with a larger group. A couple of years ago I shared images that I "discovered" in the holdings of the Huntington Library. These were images that had been donated in the 1920s and hadn't been seen for perhaps some 60 years.
The pictures were of the folks I'll be talking about this coming Thursday at a free lecture I'll be giving at the Huntington Library.
The Elliott family came from Indiana - informed by the sentiments of the time that were in support of women's suffrage, abolition, care of the mentally ill, who also had knowledge of, and experience in, business.
The interactions between these families exemplifies a good deal of what was being experienced at the end of the19th century and the beginning of the 20th century in the San Gabriel Valley and in the City of Pasadena.
