Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Pauley family is known for its ties to the oil business and the University of California, Los Angeles. The family also has a decades-long involvement with plans to redevelop the site of the historic winery in Guasti, California and the surrounding area near the Ontario International Airport. Clarke Pauley, grandson of oil magnate Edwin W. Pauley, served as general manager for Guasti Plaza, managing operations of tenants in converted buildings at the site. Guasti Plaza was also the name of the redevelopment effort that Clarke Pauley oversaw at the site. The collection contains photograph albums, brochures, clippings, business records from Guasti Plaza; and historic wine ephemera and digitized pamphlets and photographs from the Italian Vineyard Company. There are also photographs and audio recordings of Edwin W. Pauley and other members of the Pauley family.
Edwin W. Pauley was born on January 7, 1903 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Elbert (1874-1950) and Ellen (1874-1949) Pauley. His father, Elbert, worked in the oil business and formed the Pauley Oil Company, a firm that Edwin Pauley also worked at until it was sold in 1927.
