This collection consists of papers and photographs of the Kenyon, Stanley, and Crellin families. The Kenyon and Crellin families lived in Iowa in the late 19th century and moved west to Tustin, California at the turn of the 20th century, where Alta Kenyon married Harry Stanley. The Stanleys, including Mr. S.W. Stanley, were involved in citrus farming in Tustin. This collection includes programs, newspaper clippings, farming records, ledgers, brochures, postcards, school materials, and photographs from Southern California and Iowa.
The Kenyon, Stanley, and Crellin families were citrus farmers who lived in Tustin, California in the early 20th century. Miss Alta Kenyon was born in 1889 in Iowa to John Kenyon and Franc Hunt. In 1899, Alta, her cousins Chester and Perry Kenyon, and her uncle, E.M. Crellin, moved to California and settled in the city of Tustin. Alta graduated from Santa Ana High School in 1909 and attended the California School of Artistic Whistling before marrying Harry B. Stanley in 1913 in Tustin. Together they grew citrus trees and were members of the Tustin Hills Citrus Association.
