Title Frederick H. Rindge, Jr
Catalog Number FF-8
Object Name Photograph
Description 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 sons, Ron Rindge, would later play a major role in saving the Adamson House from demolition by the State to make way for a surfer beach parking lot.
