Was Orange County founded by a Klansman from Santa Ana?

Gustavo Arellano, over at the OC Weekly’s Navel Gazing Blog, has discovered something very interesting about Orange County. Apparently it was founded by a member of the KKK! Click here to read Gustavo’s post.

The Klansman in question was Dr. Henry William Head, who served in the State Assembly. Head was apparently a popular physician in Santa Ana. I am sure this will warm the hearts of the Minutemen and their allies. Will Santa Ana’s Rosie Avila seize on this in her congressional race against Loretta Sanchez?
