BILL MORROW: Growing up in Mandarin Through My Eyes and Stories My Family Told Me

Bill Morrow will share through a photographic presentation personal stories about his family’s experiences living in Mandarin from the late 1800s to modern times. His heritage includes the Jacks, Kennedy, Monson, and Morrow families, who came to Bayard and Mandarin when these areas were still rural and very lightly populated. These pioneering families have made numerous contributions to Mandarin life including their work as farmers, doctors, builders, and historians. His look back through time will leave you with a clear idea of what life was like for those who settled here way before San Jose’s six-lane highway of traffic jams and car washes.
