 Retired Teachers to Hear of the Huntington Library’s Remarkable Works

Huntington Library docent Susan Mader will speak at a Retired Teachers’ meeting on April 12.

When Henry E. Huntington settled in California from New York, he was already an established businessman and collector of art and rare books.  His cultural gem in San Marino

is the Huntington Library, along with his art collections and gardens.  How much do visitors to the site really know about the Huntington Library as a research library?   Volunteer docent Sandra Mader, a representative of the Huntington Speakers Bureau, will focus on the Library as a source for research in her presentation to members of the California Retired Teachers’ Association #71 (CalRTA-SGV) at their April meeting.

The CalRTA #71 luncheon meeting will take place on Friday, April 12 at 11:30 a.m. at the Senior Center Building in Arcadia Park (county park), 405 W. Santa Anita Ave., Arcadia, next to the Lawn Bowling Greens. The cost of the luncheon for members and guests is $13.  For those who pay at the door, the cost is $14.  Please call John Gera at (626) 286-0714 for reservations by April 5.

As a volunteer docent, Sandra Mader works in the Huntington Library and also leads school tours.  A retired educator from the Whittier schools, Mader enjoys her time at the Huntington and is happy to tell her audiences about the year-long Huntington Centennial celebration beginning this fall.  A commemorative rose named “Huntington’s Hundredth” has been developed for the occasion!

Membership in the California Retired Teachers’ Association is open to all retired educators, as well as to current educators and to any others interested in joining this active group.  CalRTA’s motto is “Your Partner in Pension Protection.”
