A collection of material related to the
life and work of Elizabeth C. Hazelton; includes letters, business material, manuscripts,
photographs, drawings, and ephemera.
Elizabeth Clara (Reynolds) Hazelton was born in London, England in 1866, and came to the
United States in 1884. She married W.E. Hazelton on June 1, 1897 and in the same year they
moved from Boston, Massachusetts to Los Angeles, California. In the years following the
couple lived in Juneau, Alaska and Seattle, Washington, searching for a healthier climate
for W.E. Hazelton. After the death of her husband in 1931, Elizabeth C. Hazelton returned to
California and worked as a stenographer and writer; her two major literary efforts were
"Alaskan For-get-me-nots" and "Poppy of California" which were compilations of material
reassembled from her own writings and writings of other authors.
