A typewritten essay that describes the establishment and history of the First Century Families of California and the group's annual luncheon. The essay additionally emphasizes the importance of preserving the stories exchanged at these annual lunches because they capture and reveal the great social and cultural changes in Los Angeles over time. Also included are a list of the officers and committee members for the First Century Families and what appears to be a list of members and their corresponding ancestors who were pioneers and early settlers in California.
