Fair exhibit a tribute to Marin's first advisor
M.B. Boissevain, who became a UCCE advisor in 1920, took approximately 500 photos of Marin agriculture and its people during his 30-year career. Ellie Rilla, UCCE advisor in Marin County, and David Lewis, UCCE director and advisor in Marin County, assembled an exhibit of 74 of his photos that was on display at the Marin County Fair June 30 – July 4.
Lewis and Rilla have also written a book, “Marin Agrarian Roots,” about the agricultural history of the county based on Boissevain’s photos and farm reports.
