It used to be a seaport full of whorehouses and bars. I like the quietness. They ask you how you're doing, they really want to know."[64]
  • Richard Henry Dana, Jr.: Author of the famous memoir Two Years Before the Mast. Dana was not a resident, but rather a famous visitor to San Pedro who wrote about the experience in his chronicle; San Pedro's first middle school is named after him:"Two days brought us to San Pedro, and two days more (to our no small joy) gave us our last view of that place, which was universally called the hell of California and seemed designed in every way for the wear and tear of sailors. Not even the last view could bring out one feeling of regret. No thanks, thought I, as we left the hated shores in the distance, for the hours I have walked over your stones barefooted, with hides on my head, – for the burdens I have carried up your steep, muddy hill, --for the duckings in your surf; and for the long days and longer nights passed on your desolate hill, watching piles of hides, hearing the sharp bark of your eternal coyotes, and the dismal hooting of your owls." – excerpt from Two Years Before the Mast (at the time, a dock did not exist in San Pedro and stock was loaded onto smaller boats and rowed ashore).[65][66]
  • Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston: Author of the popular memoir Farewell to Manzanar on the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Wakatsuki Houston briefly lived in East San Pedro (Terminal Island): "In those days it [East San Pedro] was a company town, a ghetto owned and controlled by the canneries. The men went after fish, and whenever the boats came back-day or night-the woman would be called to process the catch while it was fresh. One in the afternoon or four in the morning, it made no difference...I can still hear the whistle—two toots for French's, three for Van Camp's—and she [Mom] and Chizu would be out of bed in the middle of the night, heading for the cannery." – excerpt from Farewell to Manzanar
  • Louis L'Amour: Western fiction writer L'Amour chronicled some of his San Pedro beach experiences in the 1980 book Yondering: "The worst times were when he was "on the beach" – on shore, in San Pedro, California, between ships and broke. "I slept in boxcars and under piles of lumber, and took jobs no one else wanted. I was 18 and looked 24. There were several times I went three and four days without eating. I didn't beg or steal, just went without. I'd like to recover for my readers what it's really like to be hungry. I have a penchant for stories about survival, lessons in survival. I've been a survivor most of my life."[67]
  • Scott O'Dell (1898–1989): Deceased author of young adult literature, O'Dell lived in East San Pedro (Terminal Island) during his childhood: "Island of the Blue Dolphins, though it is based upon the true story of a girl who lived alone on a California island for eighteen years, came from the memory of my years at San Pedro and Dead Man's Island, when, with other boys my age, I voyaged out on summer mornings in search of adventure."[68]
  • John Shannon: Author of the "Jack Liffey" series of noir thrillers who grew up in San Pedro: "It was interesting. San Pedro may have been the last great place to grow up in the L.A. area – a harbor, a real sense of community, a real Left, even a literary history: Charles Bukowski, Louis Adamic, even Richard Henry Dana stayed [here] for a time. I could ride the ferry across to Terminal Island, hang out at the docks, walk down the harbor among the commercial fishing boats with old Sicilians and Croatians mending their nets, catch crawdads in Averill Park."[69]

Film and television[edit]

Organized crime[edit]


Random Lengths News started publishing in San Pedro in 1979 and now continues to be the last newspaper published there.
