Description
This collection primarily consists of Lura Whitlock Porter's research concerning her family history.
Background
Don Carlos Porter was the son of Andrew O. and Anna Porter. From 1897 to about 1904 he was City Attorney for South Pasadena. He founded a law partnership with Charles T. Sutton under the name Porter and Sutton. It became one of the oldest law firms in Los Angeles. Don, as he was known in later life, was one of the youngest men that the First Methodist Church of Pasadena ever had as a Trustee. He retained his position there until shortly before his death at the age of 88 in 1959. He was active in the Pasadena Pioneer Association and the Pasadena Historical Society. Don married Lura Whitlock, whom he had met at the University of Southern California. After her death he married her sister, Maud.
