Lucia is the granddaughter of Jonathan Kittle, who owned the Ross estate "Sunnyside," which is presently the site of the Marin Art & Garden Center. Lucia describes the estate, and recalls her fond memories of her family and their home in Ross in the early 1900s. 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.
