The Mattoon Act Wreaks Havoc

Helen Ofield speaks on “The Dire Effects of the Mattoon Act 1925-1940.” Did your forebears lose home, land and money under the yoke of the Mattoon Act? The Acquisition and Improvement Act, its proper name, was passed by the California legislature in May 1925. The bill was intended to streamline the process of, and provide funding for, construction of needed public works—paved streets, lighting, bridges, reservoirs, better and more reliable water delivery. While nobly intentioned, this pyramid scheme wreaked havoc. Some in SoCal are living with Mattoon’s impact even today. Ofield has the lowdown in words and pictures.
