La Jolla: A Celebration of Its Past
Patricia Daly-Lipe, Barbara Dawson, Steele Lipe
Sunbelt Publications, 2002 - History - 212 pages
Arich and varied collection of vignettes and essays about historic La Jolla, with an emphasis on the many extraordinary people who helped to build and shape this special place. Most chapters are by the authors, both long-time La Jolla residents, but other contributors include such well-known La Jollans as Cliff Robertson and Gary Fogel. Each of these short pieces, many of which were originally published in the La Jolla Village News, is illustrated with one or two rare vintage photos of famous faces or renowned or unusual places. From the pioneers of Scripps Institution to surfers at Windansea, from doctors to domestics, and artists to architects, the denizens of the "jewel by the sea" have often been known for extraordinary creativity, and sometimes brilliance. Nobel laureates and Academy Award winners have lived or worked here, and this fascinating look at La Jolla's past features a wide variety of interesting, intriguing, and colorful characters. Book jacket.
