Feb. 13, 1947: Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Ruben S. Schmidt ordered Isabel Crocker and her three daughters were ordered to vacate their home at 435 N. Westbourne Drive because they were Native American. Crocker’s husband, Harry, was allowed to say because he was French-Canadian, and white.
Judge Schmidt died Feb. 23, 1947, shortly after issuing this decision. I was unable to find any final outcome on this case.
