Summary
Benjamin Davis Wilson (1811-1878) of Tennessee came to California in 1841, married into the prominent Yorba family, and acquired a vast property, including a ranch that encompassed the site of modern Riverside. He was elected mayor of Los Angeles in 1851 and was named sub-agent for Indian Affairs for Southern California not long after. The Indians of southern California in 1852 (1952) reprints a report Wilson prepared in collaboration with Benjamin Hayes after being named a federal Indian agent. The document identifies two major problems: the security of ranches and settlements from Indian raids and the plight of the mission Indians. He recommends a reservation system as the solution to both. John Walton Caughey's introduction provides useful background, supplemented by his appendix of "Contemporary Comment."
