San Diego's least-remembered great man – U.S. Grant Jr.

Second son and namesake of the warrior president U. S. Grant.

Buck Grant was a man of substantial means in 1893 (thanks, in large part, to that $1 million dowry from his senator father-in-law). He bought a 25-room mansion at Eighth Avenue and Ash Street.
