Harris Newmark came to Los Angeles in 1853. He was a highly successful merchant and real estate man. He founded the cities of Montebello and Monterey Park. He wrote the very important book, "Sixty Years In Southern California: 1853-1913," a work described by California historian and State Librarian Kevin Starr as "the single most valuable memoir to deal with the rise of the Southland in the 19th century. His most famous quote was: "I believe Los Angeles is destined to become, in not many years, a world-center prominent in almost every field of endeavor. [Just] as nineteen hundred years ago the humblest Roman . . . would glow with pride when he said "I am a Roman!" so will the son of the metropolis on these shores . . . be proud to declare "I AM A CITIZEN OF LOS ANGELES!" -- Harris Newmark, 1915 (bio by: Joe Walker)
