My Santa Barbara Scrap Book - Elizabeth Eaton Burton by Hattie Beresford (Lecture)

Wednesday, October 8 at 2:00 pm
Reservations required

Join us for an encore presentation about the Museum's publication, My Santa Barbara Scrapbook. Elizabeth Eaton Burton's pioneering work in the Arts and Crafts world raised her to national prominence in the early 1900s. An eclectic look at life, culture, and art at the turn of the 20th century, her memoir, My Santa Barbara Scrap Book, is an engaging narrative that transports the reader to our city's past. Augmented with historical photos from the collections of the Museum and elsewhere, the book also includes many never-before-published color images of her incredible work in leather, shell, and metal as well as her later work in watercolor and woodblock prints.

About the speaker:
Former teacher, author and historian Hattie Beresford writes the popular column "The Way It Was" for the Montecito Journal. Active in the Pearl Chase Society and at the Museum, Hattie can often be found speaking about Santa Barbara history, hiking our local trails, and doing research in the Gledhill Library.
