Hidden Founders of San Marino

Monday, October 28, 7:00 p.m.

While most San Marino residents are familiar with the historic names of Patton and Huntington, there were other families living in the area before San Marino became a chartered city. Come hear stories of some of those lesser known individuals who made up the 500 citizens of San Marino: Edward J.C. Kewen, George Stoneman, James deBarth Shorb to name a few. See photographs from the era, and perhaps learn a little bit more about this centenarian city.

This program will feature JENNIFER ALLAN GOLDMAN, the Institutional Archivist and a Curator of Manuscripts at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. She is responsible for the Huntington Institutional Archives, as well as all manuscript collections related to Henry Huntington, his family and his business interests. In addition, Jennifer oversees collections in transportation, modern Southern California corporations, and 20th century American history.

This program is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Library’s Barth Community Room. Seating is limited and attendance to these monthly programs has been to capacity so please arrive early.
