San Diego, California 


    For photos of San Diego's Barbara Worth Hotel, which was demolished in 1982 to make way for Horton Plaza Shopping Center, click here.

     Wright  never actually lived in the city of San Diego, but he lived the last ten years of his life in Escondido, about 25 miles to the north. Shortly before he died he sold Quiet Hills Farm and bought a home in San Diego for his wife to live in.  Norman Wright told me that his dad never lived in the house. Pete Petiford, a local collector, found the house at 2416 Pamo street. The photos were taken by Dave Hadsell in early 2005. As usual, click on the small photos to see larger pictures.

     Wright was hospitalized in the Scripps Hospital in San Diego and is buried in Greenwood Memorial Park, near where the 805 and 94 freeways intersect [Map].  For many years there was in the mausoleum a large glass case with manuscripts and copies of his books and other memorabilia.  All that material was put in storage by the cemetery staff, probably in the 1980s, and then returned to the Wright family in 1993.  That material is now displayed in the Pioneers Museum in El Centro.  There is still a very nice framed photo of Wright on the wall of the mausoleum, and his grave is marked by a brass memorial in the shape of one of his books.  Most of his family, including his first and second wives, are buried in the same area. Photos by Gerry Chudleigh (dscn) and Dave Hadsell (greenwood).

Wright's grave is in the Cathedral Mausoleum Garden Court, in front of the door leading into the Mausoleum. Click here to see notes about and to Wright on the Find-A-Grave site.
