History of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, Vol. 3 free pdf Excerpt from History of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, Vol. 3: With Selected Biography of Actors and Witnesses of the Period of Growth and Achievement Stephen Henderson Herrick - It would be difficult to conceive of broader and greater benefits flowing from the influence and character of one individual and affecting in a constructive and progressive way the development and future of the Riverside community than those attributable to Stephen Henderson Herrick during his residence of nearly forty years in California. He was one of the men of vision as well as practical resourcefulness who comprised an important syndicate of Iowa capitalists attracted to the development of that section lying east and north of the original Riverside Colony. The primary problems involved in its development was a dependable irrigation system. That system was first inaugurated in the famous Gage Canal. Mr. Herrick as head and member of the Iowa syndicate furnished the support and co-operation to Matthew Gage which were indispensable for the construction of that irrigation project on a broad and stable basis. On part of the land benefited by this enterprise Mr. Herrick in 1887 set out the first plantings of orange trees, and of the extensive holdings he has had and helped develop he still retains a large part, indicating that his interest in the country is not that of a speculator but one who is willing to wait for the fruits of his constructive enterprise to ripen. While so much of his time has been given to the material development, his interest has been deep and abiding in the broader growth and progress of Riverside. He has been a factor in the organization of some of the leading banks of this locality, notably the Citizens National and the Security Savings of Riverside, and for a number of years was president of both institutions. He is now Chairman of the Board of Directors of the latter bank. Mr. Herrick represents one of the oldest lines of Colonial New England ancestry, although he traces his line back over 1,000 years to Eric, a Norse chieftain or king. One of his ancestors was a judge of court in Massachusetts, and was directly responsible for putting an end to the infamous practice of witchcraft. The English branch of Herricks came to America in 1660, settling at Salem and Beverly, Massachusetts. S. H. Herrick was born at Crown Point, Essex County, New York, son of Stephen Leonard Herrick, a Congregational minister who for twenty-five years was in charge of the church at Crown Point. Later he removed to Fairhaven, Vermont, and from there to Grinnell, Iowa, where for many years, until his death in 1886, he was connected with Grinnell College as a teacher and trustee. The mother of S. H. Herrick was Delia Ives, a native of Vermont. Her parents were of Scotch ancestry and moved from Connecticut to Vermont in December, 1799, for a large part of the way, blazed trees marking the route for their slow going caravan of ox teams. While on this pilgrimage they received the news of the death of Washington. Stephen Henderson Herrick was reared and educated in Iowa, attending public schools and after completing a full course in Liberal Arts at Grinnell College in 1865, he received the A. B. degree. After a further two years course in law and theology he received the degree of Master of Arts. His alma mater also elected him to membership in the Phi Beta Kappa honorary society. Instead of entering upon a professional career he took up mercantile business at Grinnell, and continued that connection for twenty-three years. He was also deeply interested in his alma mater, and in 1883, after the buildings of Grinnell College had been destroyed by a cyclone, he came west to Oakland. California, and for several months was busy throughout the state in making collections, particularly for the college museum.
