Meet Our Speakers:

Nina Kidd is a first-generation Californian, born and raised in Los Angeles. She attended Scripps College and Claremont Graduate School. She taught art, and advised the yearbook staff, at Brentwood School, an independent college-prep school in West Los Angeles. She has been a nonfiction writer, and illustrator, and became interested in documenting the Kidd family history starting in 1971.

David Kidd is a first-generation Californian, who grew up on a dairy farm, in Modesto, with his parents, and Tennessee grandmother. Dave graduated from Claremont Men’s College, and retired in 2000, from a career in management, at Hughes Aircraft Company. It was stories told him, by Grandma Josephine Wilkinson Kidd, and the works of author Bruce Catton, that first stirred his interest in his family, and the American Civil War.
