In 1893, George W. Glover founded South Pasadena’s first successful newspaper, South Pasadenan.
He ran the paper for 15 years during the fledgling municipality’s formative years. Glover was a passionate tree lover, and on April 24, 1894, local volunteers met at his newspaper office (pictured above) to plant one thousand shade trees in the city.
Today, the South Pasadenan is enjoying a rebirth as the city’s online source for news and entertainment.
