Home of Peace Memorial Park: The Unauthorized Guide by Mark Masek

Home of Peace Memorial Park in East Los Angeles was originally located near the current site of Dodger Stadium and opened in 1855 as the first organized community effort by the city’s pioneer Jewish settlers. The cemetery was moved to its current location in the early part of the 20th century, and contains the final resting places of some of the biggest names in the history of Hollywood, including MGM studio chief Louis B. Mayer, Universal Studios founder Carl Laemmle, three of the four movie-making Warner brothers, and two of the Three Stooges -– Curly and Shemp.

About the Author

Mark Masek was born and raised in Joliet, Ill., about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. He was always interested in history and Hollywood and, when he moved to the Los Angeles area in 1999, he was able to combine his interests, and wrote "Hollywood Remains to Be Seen: A Guide to the Movie Stars' Final Homes," a detailed history and guidebook to 14 cemeteries in the Los Angeles area, as well as a guide to find the final burial locations of more than 300 entertainment celebrities. He is also a member of the Hollywood Underground, a group of people with the similar interests of finding and documenting the final resting places of celebrities. If they're famous, and they're dead, and they're buried somewhere in the Los Angeles area, he probably knows where to find them.
