Calabasas Girls
An Intimate History 1885 - 1912
By Catherine Mulholland

Catherine Mulholland tells the story of her mother’s people, the Ijams, Haas, and Perret families of Calabasas and Pasadena, revealing many details of early life in those communities. Family letters make the heart of the work, and newspaper accounts add authenticity.

This book was first published in 1976, tand the new edition responds to requests from the historical societies and residents of Calabasas and the wider San Fernando Valley, wanting to have this historical record available once again. This lively and human history echoes the origins of many Southern California towns, and brings all readers closer to their own pioneer past.

Catherine Mulholland is the author of William Mulholland and the Rise of Los Angeles, an acclaimed biography of her grandfather, and The Owensmouth Baby: The Making of a San Fernando Valley Town.
