"For over 40 years, Dorothy Erskine worked tirelessly behind the scenes to support housing for the poor, rational urban and regional planning, preservation of farmland and the creation of parks and open space. A new biography explores Erskine’s life and career, including her motivations, inspirations and achievements as one of the Bay Area’s foremost civic and environmental activists in an era when few women held similar roles. With author Janet B. Thiessen. Co-sponsored by Friends of Dorothy Erskine and Greenbelt Alliance."
