These are selected excerpts from a photo album depicting the activities of the Pacific Lodge Boys Home, one of the philanthropic causes to which George Pepperdine dedicated his time and money. Pacific Lodge was a welfare home for troubled boys between the ages of 12 and 16, the majority of whom had been through Juvenile Court. Founded in 1923 by the Protestant Welfare Association, Pacific Lodge moved from its original location near Pomona in 1928 to new facilities in present-day Woodland Hills in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles. The reformative education mixed classroom learning with agricultural activities and recreation. As a member of the Board of Directors, George Pepperdine was intimately involved in the success of this institution. This collection of photos with handwritten captions was assembled in 1936.
