American Legion Scrapbook 1936-1939
The American Legion Post was instrumental in converting the Ambassador Hotel’s bankrupt country club into the public Cheviot Hills Recreation Center and Rancho Park Golf Course. It also fought to add decades of service to the Santa Monica Air Line, with post historian Bernard Geissler writing, “The Santa Monica Air-Line has served this community for many years and to abandon this service would mean considerable inconvenience of the residents, including several members of the Post.”
