The Salida Mail, April 2, 1920:
Edward Hively, pioneer of Salida, died yesterday at his home in Los Angeles, Calif., where he had resided for fifteen years. During his residence here he was one of the most influential citizens. He built the Hively block, which was sold two years ago to J. W. DeWeese, who soon after disposed of it to Stancato.
He was at one time clerk in the Ben Disman Clothing store, after which he was in the hardware business.
