The community now known as Tarzana was founded in 1922 as Runnymede but when a post office was needed, the residents' request was denied because there was already a Runnymede in California. Due to the presence of the adjacent Tarzana Ranch and Tarzana Tract, which was donated from part of the ranch by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1923, the town voted and officially named the town Tarzana in 1927. The claim that Tarzana was named after "Tarzan of the Apes" because the author of the Tarzan series, Burroughs, was the owner of the Tarzana Ranch, is true.*
