Zane Grey


Best known for his novel Riders of the Purple Sage, his books sold in the tens of millions before and after his death in 1939. He also owned a home on Santa Catalina Island off the coast from Los Angeles as seen in this circa 1939 postcard.

“His greatest sustained success, wealth, and fame came after he [and his family] moved to Altadena, California, in 1918… By 1930 he was hailed as the most sought after writer in America.”
