|Recounting Lives in Post-WWII Sonoma County with Pete Golis|

Pete Golis, columnist for the Press Democrat, will moderate a discussion between Marie Sugiyama, George Ortiz, and Bea Harris about the socio-economic effects on communities during the post-WWII period in Sonoma County. This is a different side of the post-war period that we want to document and include in conjunction with our exhibition, Building The American Dream: Sonoma County After the War.
Pete Golis retired as Editorial Director of The Press Democrat in 2008 but continues to write a column for the paper. He also serves on the boards of Community Foundation Sonoma County and the Redwood Empire Food Bank. Marie Sugiyama was born and raised in Sonoma County, and except for the four years during WWII in Amache Granada Internment Camp in Colorado, Marie has lived in Sonoma County all her life. She is Chairman of the Sonoma County Japanese American Citizens League Oral History Committee, and taught at Montgomery High School for 32 years. George Ortiz was a social worker, social activist and founder of the North Bay Human Development Corp., a nonprofit for community work. It expanded to the California Human Development Corp., led by Ortiz as executive director until his retirement in 2004. Bea Harris moved to Santa Rosa with her family in 1953. She taught preschool for many years and was the director of a preschool before she retired at age 80.
