Santa Rosa - Then & Now ”The Pluckiest City in California” ...the “before” and “after” of natural disasters.

Celebrate our sesquicentennial with Gaye LeBaron -preeminent local historian.
Marking the City of Santa Rosa’s sesquicentennial (150th year), LeBaron will discuss: Santa Rosa Then and Now, the Pluckiest City in California—the “Before and After” of Natural Disasters. In addition to writing more than 8,000 entertaining columns for The Press Democrat over the years, she has also pioneered a number of major books on Sonoma County. Early on, she wrote the foreword for the pioneering work Wild Oats in Eden: Sonoma County in the 19th century. The collaborating group in the 1960s included Harvey Hansen, Jeanne Thurlow Miller, and photographers Ansel Adams, John LeBaron and Beth Winter.

In 1985, LeBaron, Hansen, Dee Blackman and Joann Mitchell collaborated on Santa Rosa: a Nineteenth Century Town. In 1993, LeBaron joined with with Joann Mitchell on Santa Rosa: A Twentieth Century Town.

After 42 fruitful years, she went into semi-retirement in 2001. She still writes at least twice a month in The Press Democrat and has been busy working on fire stories since the tragic events of October, 2017.
