Excerpts from the The Orange County Review (1921)
Among the many treasures hidden in the archives of the Fullerton Public Library Local History Room are digital copies of a monthly magazine called The Orange County Review, which was published in Fullerton for a few years in the early 1920s. I’ve spent the past few weeks reading over the issues from the year 1921.
I learned many fascinating things from these dusty pages about what was happening in the world, in America, in Orange County, and in Fullerton a century ago. Sometimes I was shocked. Sometimes I laughed. But mostly I marveled at how much things have (and have not) changed in the past 100 years. I present, for your edification and reflection, excerpts from this publication, with news of the world, the nation, and our community. Enjoy.
