Frank Putnam Flint Edit Profile
Removed with parents to San Francisco, 1869, and educated in public schools there. Moved to Orange Company, California, 1886.
He served as United States Attorney for the Southern District of California from 1897 to 1901 and as a U.S. Senator from California from 1905 until 1911, as a Republican. Flint served one term in the Senate and did not seek reelection. The city of La Cañada Flintridge, California is named, in part, for him, as he was a developer of Flintridge, which merged with La Cañada in the late 20th century.
As a Senator from California, he played a great part in making the Mission style the official architectural style of government buildings in Southern California and played a major political role in bringing Owens Valley water to metropolitan Los Angeles. On his death in 1929, Flint was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale.
