The Southwest Builder and Contractor indicated in 1921 that the Odd Fellows Cemetery Association was seeking to build a store from which to derive rental income for the maintenance of the cemetery. It said: "Brick store building...Architects Morgan, Walls & Morgan...have prepared plans for a 1-story brick store building, 120x60 feet on Stephenson Ave. [renamed Whittier Boulevard] for Odd Fellows Cemetery Association..." (See "Odd Fellows Building," Southwest Builder and Contractor, 11/25/1921, p. 17, col. 1. Card from the Los Angeles Public Library California Index.) Burial benefits were an important enticement fraternal orders could offer potential members.
