Catherine Mulholland exhibit opens in Northridge

mulholland-exhibit-cover.jpgThe Cal State Northridge library on Tuesday unveils an exhibit of memorabilia, photos and clothing from the collection of the writer Catherine Mulholland, who died in July. She grew up at the rural west end of the San Fernando in the early 20th century and her material tells of life there, the growth of Los Angeles and her famous grandfather, water engineer William Mulholland. A great grandfather, Isaac Ijams, had been a "hanging judge" in the ranching area of Calabasas.

I'm taking part in a panel discussion at the exhibit's opening Tuesday in the Oviatt Library on campus.
