About this Item

Title
Life in the open; sport with rod, gun, horse, and hound in southern California,
Summary
Charles Frederick Holder (1851-1915), a founder of Pasadena's Tournament of Roses, came from a wealthy Massachusetts Quaker family. After working as a curator at New York's American Museum of Natural History, Holder moved to Pasadena in 1885. A passionate naturalist throughout his life, he became known in Pasadena as a businessman, philanthropist, and conservationist/sportsman. Life in the open (1906) is Holder's account of hunting and fishing in the counties of Santa Barbara, San Buenaventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, and San Diego. The topics include horseback hunts for lynx, fox, and wolves; fishing for trout in the Sierra Madres and for game fish off Catalina; pursuit of shore birds and water fowl; mountain lions and mountain goats; and photographic hunts for sea lions. Throughout, Holder argues for the sportsman's role in conservation.
