Born in San Francisco on August 8, 1900. Retired Wells Fargo banker and sugar refiner, he tells of his life-long association and love of Marin. He specifically mentions the Dipsea Race, Willow Camp (now known as Stinson Beach), Bolinas, hikes and exploration of Mount Tamalpais, the early character of Stinson and Bolinas, old hotels and landmarks, the Alpine Club, and the history of the Olympic Club. An outdoors man, he loved the mountain and as a conservationist he did much to preserve and protect the lands which are now the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the Point Reyes National Seashore. From 1974 to 1984, Carla Ehat, with partner Anne Kent, and later Genevieve Martinelli, interviewed a broad spectrum of Marin County's long-time residents, from ranchers to politicians, including descendants of early pioneer families. This program was co-sponsored by the Marin County Free Library and the Moya Library in Ross. The resulting archive, consisting of nearly 300 recordings and their corresponding transcriptions, are housed in the Anne T. Kent California Room at the Civic Center branch of the Marin County Free Library.
