rom 1884 until 1929, Santa Barbara
was blessed by the attentions of Francis
Townsend Underhill, a true Renaissance man whose work in the fields
of animal husbandry, ranching, plant propagation, architecture, and
landscaping had a significant and lasting effect on the community. His
interests in yachting, polo, and horse racing contributed greatly toward
establishing quality programs that drew well-heeled Eastern visitors and residents,
and his active participation in dozens of clubs and numerous civic enterprises enriched
the lives of all Santa Barbarans.
