Ventura, city and County, in 1948, 49

by Paul Samuelson
(San Rafael, CA)

Am writing a crime novel featuring a rookie Ventura policeman in the late 1940s. Was there any local skulduggery during that time that I might use as subplot without defaming anyone's family?

Erle Stanley Gardner's work was inspired by his experiences as a trial lawyer in Ventura among other places. You might check his bio(s) for leads. But first try contacting the librarian at the Ventura Museum; he probably has the local newspapers of the period on Microfilm.
