Friends of the Gamble House presents “The Health Seekers” with Michele Zack. Historian Michele Zack will speak on illness as a major factor in nineteenth and twentieth century immigration to Southern California.

Zack, an Altadena resident and author of histories of Altadena and Sierra Madre, says that her research shows “The importance of the illness legacy has been underestimated as an influence of how we think of Southern California today.”

Indeed, many health seekers who suffered from tuberculosis and other respiratory diseases moved to California and other Western states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for their then-dry, unpolluted air. The foothill communities of Pasadena, Altadena and Sierra Madre were home to a number of TB sanitariums and hospitals, as were other communities in the San Gabriel Mountain foothills.

This nurturing practice is a perfect match for the relaxing and serene setting of the Gamble House.
