A reading of the founding and early history of the League is rich with colorful personalities and political intrigue. For a flavor of the character of the men who founded this association, read the following excerpt from a history of the League prepared by Winston Updegraff, former editor of Western City magazine and a long-time Laguna Beach resident. Portions of his history appeared in the September and October 1973 editions of Western City, a magazine in celebration of the League's 75th anniversary.
