Speaker: Betsy J. Green
1914 was the year of the tango, the 500-year flood, “tidal waves,” stunt pilots, Buffalo Bill, Pancho Villa, the war in Europe, Flying “A” films, Martha Graham, German warships, the Rose Parade, and much more. Betsy tells it like it was with a healthy dollop of humor. She has been writing and speaking about local history for more than 25 years. She writes a history and humor column called “Way Back When” for the local website Edhat.com and another history column for The Mesa paper. Betsy has given presentations at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum and the Santa Barbara County Genealogy Society.
