Orange County Historical Society to hear about California political history at meeting on September 9

Whether inspiring, maddening, confusing or shocking, politics in California are never dull. Our state has always marched to its own drum and been a place to try new things. And our government and politics have always been part of that. The effects of our experiments over the past 170 years continue to affect us – and the rest of the country – in profound and sometimes surprising ways.

Dr. Barbara Stone, Emeritus Professor of Political Science at CSU Fullerton will be the Orange County Historical Society’s featured speaker on Thursday, Sept. 9, at 7:30 p.m. She will be looking at the scope of California’s political history with an emphasis on Orange County’s role.

Dr. Barbara S. Stone was a political science professor at CSUF for 32 years and served as Department Chair. She is a former member of California’s Little Hoover Commission and the Governor’s Commission on Educational Quality. She is the author of the California Politics Supplement for American Government and co-author of California’s Political Process and has written numerous scholarly journal articles.

Our program will be held this Thursday, September 9, at 7:30 pm at Trinity Episcopal Church, 2400 N. Canal St., Orange. As always, members and the general public are cordially invited to attend. (Doors open at 7 pm.)

COVID Precautions: Masks are requested for those as yet unvaccinated. All others are invited to wear masks if you prefer.
