I sometimes picture my farm as a battlefield with troops of people struggling with nature in a hundred-year war.

Germans, Italians, Chinese and Japanese, Armenians, Filipinos, and Mexicans---their voices have sounded over this farm, their families have walked these rows . . .

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.
