Bringing History Alive From the Words of Those Who Were There - A presentation by Judith Robinson

Author Judith Robinson will tell stories from her historical and political biographies about the Hearst family, Congressman Phil Burton, Senator Alan Cranston, and William Ingraham Kip, the first Episcopal Bishop of California. Judith's many published works include "You're in Your Mother's Arms" - The Life & Legacy of Congressman Phil Burton; The Hearsts - An American Dynasty; Gold Rush Bishop - William Ingraham Kip, First Episcopal Bishop of California and his Family; Alan Cranston Senator from California - Making a "Dent in the World"; and Patriots and Loyalists - An American Family from Colonial Times.

Judith's ancestors founded Boston, Massachusetts, and New Amsterdam in the 1630s, and later pioneered the Midwest. A great-great-grandfather established the Episcopal Church in California in 1854. She has been a journalist, legislative aide in the U. S. Senate and House, editorial writer for the S. F. Examiner, and published author. She was an early member of the IHS, sponsored by founder Dr. Frances Richardson Keller.

You are welcome to invite friends and colleagues to attend.

This will be a hybrid zoom/in-person presentation. If you want to attend in person, come to the meeting room of the North Beach branch of the San Francisco Public Library: 850 Columbus Ave at Lombard. Please: No food or drink in the library!

We need a volunteer to write a short report on the presentation for the newsletter. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the program coordinator (Dan Kohanski).

The presentation will be recorded, and the question-and-answer part will be posted on YouTube for IHS members only. If you don't want to be on the recording, just make sure your video is off. And please remember to mute your microphone.
