Latham family values

The Latham Foundation was founded in 1918 by Edith and Milton Latham. Their uncle, Milton Slocum Latham (died 1882) was Governor of California in 1860 and gave the attached speech about duty and society. It is interesting to note many of the issues he comments on continue to vex society today. The values he highlights were obvious in the Latham family and continued to be core values from the founding of The Latham Foundation to our work today in 2017. We have highlighted several notable elements in this speech.
