A Marin resident for over 50 years, Bertram is a retired PG&E civil engineer. Bert shares his enthusiasm for conservation and preservation. He and his wife Verna worked tirelessly for the acquisition of land in Marin for use as parks: Shell Beach; Camp Taylor; Tomales Bay; Stinson Beach; Tamalpais State Park; Angel Island; and 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.
