In the News~

August 5, 1916 [LAH]: “Stories of the rescue of H. Honda of the fishing boat Hujo, wrecked on Santa Catalina Island, were brought to Los Angeles harbor by visitors returning from the island. George A. Greeley, owner of the Greeley stage coach line between Avalon and the Isthmus, found Honda wandering about, his clothing torn and his feet bleeding, almost overcome by lack of food and water. Honda was taken to Avalon, where he was cared for. He told the story of the wreck of the Hujo on the island near Silver Cave. The members of the crew took refuge in Silver Cave and Honda started in search of assistance. Boats were sent out to pull the Hujo off the sand and rescue the crew.”
