and 1878 - 1882.

Charles Edward Toberman was born in 1880 in Seymour Texas. He married Josephine Washburn Bullock on March 15, 1902 in a civil ceremony in Wichita Falls, Texas. The following day, he left his bride of one day to seek fame and fortune in California, promising to return for her as soon as he was established in a job. A month later he returned for Josephine to escort her back to Hollywood, Calif. During his illustrious business career, which spans 75 years, C.E. Toberman was responsible for the construction of more buildings and the organization of more community developments than anyone in the history of Hollywood.. These accomplishment have rightfully earned him the name "Mr. Hollywood."
During his lifetime, he erected 36 stylish buildings in the heart of Hollywood, including the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and three themed theaters, which he developed with Sid Grauman -- the Egyptian, the Chinese, and the El Capitan.
