Frederick H. Rindge, Jr. (1890-1952). undated. After leaving home, Frederick Jr. migrated to the Stockton area where he used part of his inheritance to reclaim 25,000 acres of delta land for farming. He became a specialist in potatoes, following the principles of famed agronomist Luther Burbank. For several years in a row, his yield of potatoes per acre set world records. But with deepening of the Depression he was unable to continue farming, and his became one of the many farms lost during those trying times. He returned to Malibu, moving into one of the beach homes built by May Rindge at Latigo Cove (see FF-154). He never recovered financially, and died in 1952 at the age of 62. One of his

Rindge beach home lost in 1983 winter storm - FF-163

Rindge beach home at Latigo Cove after a severe storm on January 29, 1983. The house was a complete loss. Frederick H. Rindge, Jr. lived there off and on with his family from 1930-1939; in 1939 they moved there permanently. FHR Jr. died in 1952. His wife, Helen McCauley Rindge lived there from 1956 through her death in 1965. Their son Ronald L. Rindge and his wife Sue lived there from 1968 thru mid-1972. From then until it was lost in the storm, the house was owned jointly by Ron, John and Frederick H. Rindge III, after which the empty lot was sold on the open market. As noted in TRR-39, this house had been used in the original "Mildred Pierce" film in 1944.
