|Title||Oral History of Carol Budds|
|Scope & Content||
Carol Connelly Budds' grandparents, Alfred Axel Lundquist and Caroline Lundquist, came to San Francisco from Sweden in the 1880s. Around 1904 they bought a large plot of land at the corner of Marion Avenue and Cascade Drive in Mill Valley. Carol's mother Karin Lundquist Connelly was the youngest of the Lunquists' four children. Karin married Frank "Pat" Connelly in 1919 and Carol was born in 1926. In this oral history, Carol discusses her family's arrival in Mill Valley after the town's great land auction of 1890, provides her recollections of Mill Valley businesses of yore, and speaks about her work teaching in Mill Valley schools and volunteering for the Mill Valley Historical Society. Carol married Frank Budds in 1964. After a teaching career at Park School and Strawberry Point School, she retired and moved to Santa Rosa.
