The Museum of the SFV Speaker Series continues and is fortunate to have historian, author and Director of Special Projects for Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., Scott Tracy Griffin, to speak at the San Fernando Valley Arts & Cultural Center in Tarzana.
Mr. Griffin will share the history, facts and stories on the centennial, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Tarzan® and the Centennial of the Tarzana Ranch.
• In 1911, one of the promoters of the Suburban Homes Co., General Harrison Gray Otis, purchased 550 acres of what is now the heart of Tarzana. General Otis was the founder and publisher of the Los Angeles Times. He took a very active part in the development of the Valley.
• In 1915, water to the Valley was provided through the Owens River Aqueduct and the Valley was annexed to the City of Los Angeles. This secured the Valley's growth.
• In 1919, Edgar Rice Burroughs purchased the Otis Ranch, built his home there and named it Tarzana Ranch.
The event will be held at The Museum’s alliance partner's location in Tarzana.
