Walter Emmet Hayden

The Hayden Map Company was founded by Walter Emmett Hayden in the early 1920's beginning with property maps and land surveys in the Los Angeles area (Glendale), California. In 1929 Hayden built a four-bedroom cabin / lodge at Mammoth Lake and with his wife operated a summer business at Mammoth Lake from 1929 - 1969. Hayden soon realized he could expand his map business by supplying meticulously detailed and information dense recreationally-oriented maps of the area to hunters, fishermen, outdoorsmen and to tourists for driving maps. All contain significant local advertising.

Hayden's maps we have located contain copyright dates between 1934 and 1962 with later-dated maps more likely to be printed in a color other than black and white (1). Initially, in the 1930's, Hayden's maps were free but by 1955 copies were priced at 25 cents or more "to control distribution."
