Sunday, September 2, 1934

Didn't go to Sunday school today. Mother is still sick in bed. Aunt Kate and Uncle Laten came by and took me to the magazine shop.

Clara Shortridge Foltz (July 16, 1849 – September 2, 1934)

Foltz was the first female lawyer on the West Coast. She was the sister of U.S. Senator Samuel M. Shortridge. The Criminal Courts Building in downtown Los Angeles was renamed after her in 2002, and is now known as the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center.
