W.C. “Stub” Lydston (1870–1957)
By all accounts, Stub Lydston was a skilled storyteller. He wove these 1954 stories of the Owens Valley “good old days” from memories of his hunting rambles in the Sierra and ranching and fruit-growing days at Manzanar in the 1920s. Then eighty-four, he recounted them to Bessie Poole, a longtime friend and staff member at the Eastern California Museum in Independence.
