We went to all the Iowa picnics at Long Beach and between my mother and the picnics, I learned a great deal about the Tall Corn State. I best remember the stories of Old Grandfather Ellison. He was quite a character--a captain in an Iowa regiment in the Civil War and sheriff of Louisa County.
In the latter part of his career he owned a very successful home construction business, from which he made far more money than he did by acting. He built many expensive homes in Beverly Hills, and Ellison Drive in that city is named after him.
