Photo reproduced in 1937 from a steel cut.; Below the image it reads, "American Historical Society" and "Steel engraving by Stanley & Dunn." He was born in 1837, on a farm in the province of Ontario, Canada. Once his wife contracted tuberculosis, the family moved to Julian, California. After some time here in California, Freeman came to own two former Spanish ranchos, Rancho Centinela and Rancho Sausal Redondo, which he later developed. His large land holdings helped make him a prominent businessman, whose reputation in the Los Angeles business community earned him the presidency of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce (1893-1894). He also served as director of the Southern California Railway and was an esteemed benefactor of the University of Southern California. A hospital in Inglewood, the Daniel Freeman Memorial Hospital, was named after him. Portrait of Daniel Freeman (1837-1918), the founder of Inglewood.
