|Title||Oral History of Phyllis Faber|
|Scope & Content||Phyllis Faber grew up in the Eastern United States, hearing stories about Sonoma, Marin, and the Sierras from her father, who had lived in the Bay Area as a youth. She first moved to Mill Valley in 1962 with her husband and children, then left due to her husband's job transfers, later returning in 1970. In this oral history, Phyllis discusses her happy times in Mill Valley neighborhoods, becoming friends with various families, including the families of Jack Hemingway and Peter Behr. She also discusses her interest in biology, and how she came to study and advocate for wetlands preservation. Phyllis describes her involvement in the first Earth Day (1970), the creation of the California Coastal Commission, and incidents during her 10 years of service on the Commission. Phyllis also explains how she came to co-found the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT).|
