William H. Workman
Birth: 1839
Death: 1918

Politician. Mayor of Los Angeles, 1886-88 and city council (1872-1874; 1875-1880). He made his great mark in two areas of LA politics and the city's infrastructure: had Fort (now known as Broadway), Spring, Hill, and Main streets paved. During his term on the Park Commission, he donated two thirds of his land for Hollenbeck Park. When he took the hand of Maria Elizabeth Boyle (1847-1933) in 1867, two distinguished Los Angeles families were joined. Maria came from the family which had bought property now known as Boyle Heights before William Workman's acquisitions there. (bio by: Shiver)
