In fact, Ventura, California, is the birthplace of Perry Mason, history’s most famous fictional attorney. Through 82 novels, a 12-year radio show and a television series starring Raymond Burr, Perry Mason’s character helped highlight the excitement of a career in law. Creator Erle Stanley Gardner had a law practice and did much of his early writing in downtown Ventura. On March 1, 1933, the first Mason book was written in the Gardner Building at 21 S. California Street,* the building where his law offices were housed. Today, the intersection of California and Main streets bears a historical marker claiming it as the “birthplace of Perry Mason.” **
