We had come to this dry area . . . and we had paused in it and built our houses and we were slowly creating the legend of our life. We were digging for water and we were leading streams through the dry land. We were planting and ploughing and standing in the midst of the garden that we were making.

Comstock Family Papers

Harry Hordorn, Haze Jane Comstock, and friend practicing jumps

This digital exhibit briefly traces the life of Hazel Jane Comstock Hordorn with photographs and documents. Hazel, pictured here with her husband Harry Hordorn and a friend, was the daughter of Fresno County oil pioneer Lewis N. Comstock. This small collection of photographs also outlines veterinarian Harry Hordorn’s work at the Gymkhana Race Club in San Mateo, California. Click here to explore the Comstock Family Papers.

This exhibit was made possible through the research and writing of archives volunteer Madalyn Avitabile.
