RARE DRAFT: Local history buff Jim Gulbranson searched for 15 years, and finally found a rare draft of the landmark Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo between the United States and Mexico. His treasure, bought by a North Hollywood preservation group, will be at Sunday's Campo de Cahuenga historical celebration. Gulbranson chanced on the document at a book show. "The pages are stitched together with needle and thread. They didn't have staplers," said Gulbranson.
LEAVING L.A.: Speaking of history, hardly anyone embodies the Valley's more than Guy Weddington McCreary, fourth-generation North Hollywood-ite. A local street is named for his family. But McCreary may not last out the '90s here: He's thinking of retiring to Utah. His ancestors "would be very disturbed" if they saw the Valley now, he said.
