Library Lecture: James Harvery Irvine (1867 - 1947) - Free Event

Date: 21-Feb-2018

Wednesday, February 21 at 7 pm - Free Event

James Henry Irvine (1867 - 1947)

Unlike his father who emigrated from Ireland, James Harvey Irvine grew up in the privileged world of San Francisco high society.  James Harvey inherited his father's ranch on his 25th birthday.  Many would have expected the Northern California son to sell off his father's undeveloped land.  But James H. Irvine had other plans.  No other member of the Irvine family had a greater impact on the land that would someday be the city of Irvine.
