Photograph of the residence of Dr. J.P. Widney on 321 Hill Street between Fourth Street and Fifth Street, Los Angeles, ca. early 1880's. A two-story craftsman-style house is shown at center, featuring a porch and clapboard siding. Three nine-paned windows are visible on the top floor, two situated side to side at left, the third off from them to the right. The porch is mostly obscured by small trees growing in the front yard, which is surrounded by a picket fence. A box window can be seen extending from the house's left side. Weeds grow in the unpaved street out front, along the edge of the sidewalk.; Dr. Widney was one of two brothers instrumental in establishing the University of Southern California, the other being Robert Maclay Widney. Joseph P. Widney was a physician, public health officer, booster of San Pedro and a faculty member at USC as well as its second president. During his time he was, however, a fervent and vocal believer in the superiority of the Anglo-Saxon race, as reflected in his books "Race Life of the Aryan Peoples" (1907), and "The Greater City of Los Angeles" (1938).
