About this Item

Title
The Indians of Los Angeles County: Hugo Reid's letters of 1852.
Summary
Hugo Reid (1811-1852) left Scotland at the age of eighteen and settled in California in 1832. He married a woman of the Gabrielino tribe and became a rancher near the San Gabriel mission near Los Angeles. The Indians of Los Angeles County (1968) reprints letters first published in the Los Angeles Star in 1852. Reid's fortunes faltered with United States seizure of California, and he may have written the letters in hope of being named a federal Indian agent. They focus on the Native American tribes of Los Angeles County and the history of the San Fernando and San Gabriel missions.
