BRUCE MERRITT | SECRETARY
Bruce returned to Glendale in 2002, after working in New York City as a trial lawyer. He has been an active TGHS volunteer for a number of years, including as a docent for the annual Home Tour and as a member of the Neighborhood Walk group, planning and leading tours of Glendale’s earliest neighborhood. He and his wife Valerie live in a 1932 Spanish Colonial Revival home by George Postle, whose architectural firm designed several notable buildings in Glendale including Temple Sinai. Since retiring from the law Bruce has pursued his passion for history and is eager to contribute to TGHS research projects. He is the author of the book St. Mark’s Journey, a history of Glendale’s second oldest church and the church and lay people affiliated with it, as well as articles in the Journal of American History and the Southern California Quarterly.
