The Alhambra Post Advocate began publication at the end of the nineteenth century and ran daily obituary notices until the 1970s, at which point the Advocate became a weekly paper and obituary notices appeared erratically. The Advocate ceased publication completely at the end of 1992. Although the Library's holdings of the Alhambra Post-Advocate are nearly complete, we may not be able to locate an obituary notice from the 1970s and 1980s simply because it was not published.
