The quintuplets were a major media event when they were born. They were the first ones known to survive infancy. Although not a southern California story,  the public interest in them was worldwide and continued as they grew up.

Their story was mostly a sad one: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/fts/wichita_200803A12.html .
