Pages of History: County wins Whaler Island

From the Del Norte Triplicate, October 1939.

Del Norte County has finally secured ownership of Whaler Island in Crescent City harbor, according to word received from Wash­ington by City Attorney T.F. Peterson.

This fact is settled in a telegram which stated that the U.S. Supreme Court had denied a writ asked by Eric Lyders, San Francisco attorney.

Lyders originally claimed title to the island several years ago. The county contested his claim and the case had been in court ever since, until it reached the highest court in the land.

Work-together spirit
