About Author

Helen Elliott Bandini

Helen Elliott Bandini was an American writer who largely wrote on California history. Bandini was involved in civic affairs, the arts, and wrote for newspapers and periodicals. She wrote two books. Helen Elliott was born in Indianapolis and attended public schools. She moved to California in 1874, following her father, Dr. Thomas B. Elliott, an early founder and president of Indiana Colony. The name survived for a while, but they eventually demanded their own post office. Until this point, the mail was delivered up from Los Angeles by one resident's son, who attended school there. Mail for the colony was delivered to Los Angeles addressed to "Indiana Colony," but when the community registered for a post office, the Postmaster General rejected the name. Thus began the search for a new name for the town, which eventually became Pasadena. In 1883, she married Arturo Bandini (1853-1913), the son of Juan Bandini and Refugio Argüello. They have two children. Her husband was a scholar who wrote several works, including Navidad, which describes Christmas in Old California. Bandini was involved in civic affairs, the arts, and wrote for newspapers and periodicals. She wrote two books. One book, History of California, was first published in 1908.
