    John Quarty was hired as general manager of the hotel in 1943, and with his debonair style quickly became the face of the San Marcos.  Despite hard times resulting from the Great Depression, Quarty led the hotel to regain its former glitz and glamour.  He quickly became the owner of the hotel and for over thirty years operated the hotel until his death in 1979.

    John Quarty fostered an environment at the hotel that drew Hollywood celebrities, powerful businessmen, and prominent politicians.  In this photo, Quarty (left), walks the grounds of the San Marcos with Errol Flynn and his new bride Nora Eddington.

    The promotional video below was produced in 1948 when Quarty owned the hotel.  He makes several appearances throughout the six minute video.
