Ohnimus, who was almost as interesting as  Secretary of the Senate Joe Beek (Beek’s meritorious and heroic service in the second World War gives him a slight edge there) was one of the most important figures in California legislative history.

In 2008, the State Assembly created an online Ohnimus Collection relating to the Chief Clerk.
