Los Angeles Editor Was Ahead of His Time

francisco_ramirez My latest column is about Paul Bryan Gray and his new book “A Clamor for Equality,” the biography of Francisco P. Ramirez, the youthful editor of El Clamor Público, the first entirely Spanish-language newspaper published in Los Angeles. The entire run of El Clamor has been digitized and is online at USC’s website but the interface is cumbersome. Still, it’s worth a look. Here’s Vol. 1, No. 1, Junio 19, 1855.

    Very nice article. On my visit to LA in 2005 I was very enamoured with the Plaza and its history. I’m always ready to know more. It’s fun but sad to know that the editor’s house stood in what is now the west bound lane of the freeway.
