Upland—a more fitting name could not have been chosen. The city is nestled among the foothills at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains—better known to the old-timers as the Sierra Madres. Upland has a rich history, dating back to rancho days of the early 1800s, then through the land boom of the 1880s, into agricultural times, cityhood in 1906, and coming of age in the 20th century. Although the city has changed, Upland has held onto some of its rural atmosphere and charm and remains a beautiful and warm place. Those who visit enjoy it, but those who live within Upland's outstretched arms and the shadow of her peaks truly love it.

Don Clucas is a native Southern Californian who has authored several books and articles of historical interest. Fortunate to have parents who instilled in him a love of things past, his passion for researching and writing history is especially evident in stories involving California. Marilyn Anderson, director of the Cooper Regional History Museum, is a native Uplander. It was through Marilyn and the museum that most of the photographs for this book were made possible.
