POST HISTORY: On August 20, 1927, Hollywood Post 43 members traveled to Rancho Malibu Beach for the Second Annual Post Picnic. The Post Archive has a stunning and detailed panoramic photograph taken at that time.nnThe land has a tie to Comrade Harold G. Ferguson, the first Commander of Post 43: "Rancho Topanga Malibu Sequit was a 13,316-acre Spanish land grant given by Spanish Governor José Joaquín de Arrillaga in 1804 to José Bartolomé Tapia. In 1892 Frederick Hastings Rindge and May Knight Rindge, purchased the rancho. In 1926, the Marblehead Land Company, formed by May Knight Rindge, made a $6 million deal with Harold G. Ferguson to develop the La Costa area (between Las Flores Canyon and Carbon Canyon), but that deal fell apart when Ferguson was sentenced to jail for securities fraud in 1931. Ferguson laid out the development with street names as they remain today: Rambla Vista, Paseo Serra, etc. It took until the mid 1930's for development of the area to begin in earnest."

POST HISTORY: During World War II, when the Memorial Clubhouse at 2035 North Highland Avenue became a U.S. Navy recruiting station, the building's Atrium (originally known as the Woodrow Wilson Lobby) took on a patriotic flair and housed a Paramount Pictures-owned model of the U.S.S. Constitution, or "Old Ironsides."nnPost 43's Clubhouse was a U.S. Navy recruiting station that also enlisted WAVES and SPARS--its offices were first in the Trophy Room, then in the upstairs Museum spaces--and the Hollywood Post Office on Wilcox Avenue served as a U.S. Marine Corps recruiting station during #WWII.
