Administrative History

The Anne T. Kent California Room was created by Marin County Librarian, Virginia Keating, in the mid-1930s.

The room is named after Anne T. Kent, who, in the 1920s, was instrumental in establishing the Marin County Free Library System and in 1974, with Carla Ehat, established the California Room oral history program.

Since 1962, the California Room has been housed in the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Marin County Civic Center, with materials relating to the Civic Center, forming one of its special collections.
