Pasadena’s diverse population can be traced back to the city’s beginnings. The city’s temperate climate attracted many wealthy people from the Midwest and Eastern U.S., filling up its sanitariums and resort hotels. The service industry provided employment opportunities for minority groups. Anuja Navare, archivist at the Pasadena Museum of History, showed items in the Museum’s archives that help tell the story of Pasadena’s beginnings.
