The Zorthian Ranch
A few years ago, I wrote a blog entry about two remarkable people, Jirayr Zorthian and his wonderful wife, Dabney. Zorthian was a well-known artist and a free-spirit. He and Dabney enjoyed a great life on their 40 plus acre ranch in the hills above Altadena, California. Jerry passed away in 2004 at age 92. Dabney left us a few years later. I miss them both.
Just the other day, our friends, Jane Morrison and Michael Tobias, who originally introduced us to the Zorthians, sent me a link to an article that just appeared on the webpage of KCET, the PBS TV station in Los Angeles. It recounts the Zorthian story and provides some insight into what has happened to their ranch since their passing.
