This collection documents the families and business ventures of Tustin, California residents William M. Huntley and his wife Helen Gulick. Materials include family photographs, photographs of Southern California, family correspondence, business records from the Tustin Garage and the family's citrus orchard, and other documentation concerning the history of Tustin.
Helen (Laura Helen) Gulick and William Martin Huntley were married on February 20, 1909, and had one son, Walter P. Huntley (1910-1960). Four years after their marriage they moved to Tustin, California, where they built a house in 1916, which remained the family home until Helen Gulick Huntley's death. When Tustin was incorporated as a city in 1927, William M. Huntley was one of its five council members, serving from 1927 to 1932. He served as Tustin's second mayor from 1932 to1940. From 1914 to 1937, he operated the Tustin Garage with his brother-in-law, William N. Gulick. Helen Gulick and William Huntley also had a citrus orchard.
