Biography   William Hutton


Born in Washington, DC on March 21, 1826. Hutton arrived in California in 1847 as a clerk to his uncle, Wm Rich, who was paymaster for the U.S. Volunteer Forces in the Mexican War. Hutton assisted Edward Ord in surveying Los Angeles in 1849 and was county surveyor for San Luis Obispo County in 1850-51. His drawings of Los Angeles in 1847 and 1852 are alleged to be the first of that city. While in California, he did pencil drawings and watercolors of towns, missions, and ranchos. His works are of great historical value albeit primitive in execution. Hutton left California for the East in 1853 and worked as a civil engineer until his death in Montgomery, MD on Dec. 11, 1901.
