Historical Note

The Cawston Ostrich Farm was established in 1886 by Edwin Cawston, a native of England. The farm was originally located in Norwalk, California. Cawston moved his ostriches to South Pasadena in 1896 along the banks of the Arroyo Seco and marketed the enterprise as a tourist attraction. The farm was the first ostrich farm in the United States, thus South Africa’s first competitors in the ostrich feather industry. Cawston also took on the Germany feather dyeing monopoly and opened his own operations in California. The feathers and dyes produced at Cawston Ostrich Farm won medals in fairs throughout the world between 1904 and 1920. The farm was famous for being both a tourist attraction, bringing in thousands of visitors, and a premium feather manufacturer.
In 1906, Cawston incorporated the company which was valued at $1,000,000. In 1909, Cawston purchased 119 acres in Perris Valley and moved the breeding stock to the new farm. The expansion gave the farm its own supply of feed and better soil for the birds. He sold the company two years later to a local syndicate for $1,250,000 and moved back to England. The syndicate was mainly comprised of businessmen who had been long associated with the farm. The most notable of these, in terms of the collection, was Herbert J. Vatcher Jr.
Herbert J. Vatcher Jr. and his wife, Lillian, had been associated with the company for many years. Vatcher Jr.’s father was a manager and let Vatcher Jr. work on the farm when he was a teenager doing various jobs. When Cawston organized the Bank of South Pasadena he gave Vatcher Jr. a position. Vatcher Jr. was made director and manager of the Cawston Ostrich Farm in 1906 and after he brokered the sale of the farm, he was elected secretary and managing director. In 1909, Vatcher opened offices as an investment broker and was involved in real estate ventures and oil investment.
When Cawston left the ostrich farm, he took all of its available funds, leaving the company without capital. In 1914, they were deeply in debt and looked to sell the farm. Vatcher Jr. resigned in 1914, but the new management did not have any financial success either. There was a revived interest in feathers in the late 1910s and early 1920s, but ostrich was never as fashionable as it had been during the farm’s early years. Herbert and Lillian Vatcher took over the company in the early 1920s, but even this did not turn the company around. After a couple of decades of decline, failed farms and failed stores the Great Depression dealt the final blow. Assets were sold off in 1934 and the farm was closed in 1935.
