expand icon Historical Note
Hortense Baker was born in 1889 and her younger brother, Robert Merritt (known as Merritt) was born in 1890.  They also had a brother named Melvine.  The Bakers grew up in Denver, Colorado.  Merritt was a student at the Manual Training High School in the Whittier neighborhood, and graduated in 1910.  As teenagers, both Hortense and Merritt staged home-made theatrical productions with friends.  During the 1910s, Hortense married Sidney Frantz. They had two children.  Sometime in the early to mid-1920s, the Frantzs moved to San Diego where Sidney worked as a set designer, and Hortense acted with the Yorick Players.  Merritt lived in San Diego during the early 1940s and worked at the John Weiss Organization, a real estate firm. He later became the City Manager of Sierra Madre.  He died in Los Angeles in 1955.  Hortense passed away in San Diego in 1958.
