Alice, of Swiss-Italian descent, was born at Point Reyes Station and raised on a 1,212-acre dairy ranch, Ranch D, which housed 250 cattle. She tells of her life at Point Reyes, and her father, Quinto Codoni, who came to Tocaloma in 1872 and eventually became the chief hog and cattle buyer on the Point. Quinto was part owner of the schooner Point Reyes, which took a deck-load of 200 hogs to market in San Francisco. He was also Director and Vice President of the Bank of Tomales. 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.
