    (February 11, 1889-September 22, 1974)
    Born in Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania
    Dairy farmer
    Owned Spahn Ranch outside Chatsworth, California (1948-70)
    Ranch used for filming Western-themed movies and TV shows
    Allowed Charles Manson and his Family to live at the ranch (1968-69)
    He named each of his ten children after a favorite horse; Vincent Bugliosi would later note, 'He could remember in detail the namesakes, but was less clear about the kids.'
    Even before they started plotting murder, Manson and company were running a car theft ring at the ranch.
    He let the Family stay at the ranch rent-free in exchange for housework and sexual favors from the group's women, some of who were more than 60 years his junior.
    Squeaky Fromme reportedly got her nickname from the sound she made when Spahn ran his hand up her thigh.
    He bought the Spahn Ranch from cowboy star William S. Hart.
    Given his age and blindness, he is generally assumed to have been unaware of the Family's more nefarious activities.
    The movie sets and residential buildings at the ranch were destroyed in a wildfire (1970).
