Program Description

Event Details

When the Scripps family arrived in the 1980s, San Diego was a sleepy little town. E.W. and his half-sister Ellen Browning Scripps quickly found their places in the business and philanthropic communities. Come hear the stories of how the family members faced personal challenges which ultimately affected where transportation lines were extended, how water was distributed and how the construction of a mansion in the middle of nowhere was possible using well-known local talent.

Our speaker will be Linda Canada. She holds an undergraduate degree in History from UCLA and law degree from Loyola and has given talks for the History Center’s Speakers Bureau for more than 20 years.
