Description
Born in Tiburon. Marion's father worked for the Northwestern Pacific Railroad. She describes Tiburon in the early days when it was a railroad town; her childhood;schooling; refugees that came to Tiburon after the 1906 earthquake. She also shares reminiscences of her school days and later teaching days at the Tiburon School next door to her home. 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.
