Walter’s father, Daniel, traveled to California from Chicago with the Albert Kent Family in 1871, and was coachman and majordomo for the Kent Family for over 35 years. In 1896, Daniel relocated the family to San Rafael where Walter attended the B Street School. Walter reminiscences about his life on the Kent property, and the Kent family.
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.
