First Wednesday: Marin Revealed Through Historic Maps

Wednesday, January 3rd | 7:00pm

Dewey Livingston introduces the Anne T. Kent California Room’s Unrecorded Marin County Map & Survey Collection with an illustrated talk. He will highlight Marin’s many layers of history through rephotography, aerial photos, and maps. By overlaying maps and photographs he will show how our local geography and neighborhoods have changed over time, and how these maps and images can help us understand important cultural shifts and historic sites.

Livingston, map archivist for the survey map collection, has been studying and writing about Marin County history for almost 50 years. He is an historian/curator at the Jack Mason Museum of West Marin History, and has authored major studies with the National Park Service. His books include: Nicasio: The Historic Valley at the Center of Marin, In the Heart of Marin: The History of Kentfield and Greenbrae, California, and Discovering Historic Ranches at Point Reyes.

Livingston will be joined by musical guest Dore Coller.
