Short biography
Field was an employee and friend of William Randolf Hearst. Ned became the secretary, protegee and possibly lover of Fanny Stevenson (who was 38 years older), after the death of her husband Robert Louis Stevenson. After Fanny's death in 1914, Ned married her daughter Isobel Osbourne, who was 20 years his senior. Field became a successful Southern California real estate developer. In the 1920s oil was discovered on some of his property which made them wealthy. In 1926 Field purchased Zaca Lake and surrounding land in the Figueroa Mountains near Los Olivos, California. His wife Isobel built an artists studio there and the Field home became a popular meeting place for writers and actors
