- View of a photo of C. C. Julian riding in rickshaw in suit, tie, and hat, hands clasped in lap. An unidentified man pulls rickshaw, and two unidentified men are in background. C.C. Julian was a Canadian who came to Los Angeles in the 1920's and founded the Julian Petroleum Corporation, an oil drilling company and the New Monte Cristo Mining Company. Suspected for cooking the books and watering stocks, Julian sold the oil company to Sheridan C. Lewis who continued to swindle investors, and the fraud is now known as the great "Julian Petroleum Scandal." Julian eventually went bankrupt and was indicted for mail fraud. He fled to Shanghai around December 1933 where he continued to slip into poverty and finally committed suicide on March 26, 1934.
