The Elsie M. Castner Oral History Project was made possible by grants from the estates of Robert F. Cocklin, Ruth Castner Cocklin and others. The Dixon Public Library undertook this project in 1998 with the assistance of Chris Castaneda from CSU, Sacramento. The oral history of long-time resident Mae Azevedo is a record of her memories about growing up in rural Dixon, CA. Her stories relate to the economic development of agriculture and ranching in early California communities. Her father immigrated from the Azores by working on a steam ship when he was 14 years of age. He bought land in Dixon for dairy farming in the early 1900s that still belongs to the Azevedo family.
