Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains mostly handwritten and typewritten notes Dr. Lorayne Horka took from original sources regarding the Pico family and land claims in California. Some of these notes were taken from materials at the Bancroft Library at the University of California at Berkley, and the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. Other materials include bibliographies, newsletters from the Governor Pico Mansion Society from the 1960s, newspaper clippings, and photographs from 1970 of the Pico mansion. Horka created or collected most of the material, although some newsletters from the Governor Pico Mansion Society are addressed to Charlotte Tufts, librarian at the Southwest Museum during the 1960s.
Pio de Jesus Pico (1801 May 5 - 1894 September 11) was a Mexican soldier, the last governor of Mexican California in 1831, and a prominent ranchero and businessman in what is now east Los Angeles.
