    Walter Bellon. Reports and other documents., MSS 0454. Mandeville Special Collections Library, UCSD.


    Carbon copies of three reports concerning historical sites in San Diego County. One report is a brief description of San Diego County ranchos with illustrations of the cattle brand used by each rancho. Another report identifies stands of native palms throughout the county. A third briefly describes other historical sites such as the Mission Dam. The collection also includes a copy of San Diego County ordinance 349 (New Series), which established a County Park Commission; a historical map of San Diego County showing locations of ranchos, watering places, and native palms; and a carbon typescript of Winsor Josselyn's "He Flew in 1883," published in Harper's Magazine (Nov. 1930).


    Walter Bellon was a San Diego County supervisor and signer of the ordinance establishing a San Diego County Park Commission.
