This collection consists of land records associated with the Bradbury family and company developments in the
Rancho Azusa de Duarte and the city of Monrovia, California, from the 1850s to the 1930s.
L. L. Bradbury was an investor and real estate developer prominent in Los Angeles in the late 19th century. In the 1880s,
he acquired the Rancho Azusa de Duarte, which now includes the city of Duarte. He died in 1892. His son Lewis Bradbury
assumed control of the family business in 1902 and
incorporated the Bradbury Estate Company in 1904. The company continued to acquire and develop landholdings in Southern
California throughout the first three decades of the 20th
century, including land and water development in and near the city of Monrovia, California.
