Meet the Author


Authors Richard S. Kimball and Barney Noel have both served as president of the Native Sons and contribute heavily to the organization's charitable and preservation activities. Using the group's extensive archive of historic images, the authors present here a rich collection of photographs and memorabilia that tell the history of the organization as well as the state of California. To paraphrase the original charter of the Native Sons, this book will help "perpetuate in the minds of all Native Californians the memories of one of the most wonderful epochs in the world's history . . . to unite them in one harmonious body throughout the State"
