Summary expansion
Dr. Janss came to Los Angeles in 1893, and a few years later, he and his sons established Janss Investment Corporation, a family-run real estate development company which operated from 1895 to 1995 developing property in California, Colorado, and Idaho. Among the 90,000 acres of Southern California land acquired and developed by Janss were those that became Westwood. In the early 1920s, the 385-acre parcel just north of Westwood Village was donated by Janss Investment Corp. to the University of California, and became the site of the UCLA campus. The directory, published as a marketing tool to promote the medical services of the English and German Expert Specialists, was intended as a quick reference source for students, businessmen, politicians, lawyers, and others, and contains information on every town in Southern California, public parks, buildings, churches and places of amusement in Los Angeles, etc. The business section includes mention and recommendation of only the best and most reliable firms, of value to the user when selecting a merchant or professional. There are also sections on etiquette, list of chronic diseases, home remedies, and information on secret societies, art exhibitions, newspapers, local travel, and "pithy" historical facts
