Meet author Jack Gibson at Book Passage in Corte Madera, July 26 at 7:00 p.m.
With the founding of MMWD in 1912, the citizens of Marin not only created a public water system but also laid the groundwork for the perpetual protection of the 18,500-acre Mt. Tamalpais Watershed. Mount Tamalpais and the Marin Municipal Water District, a new pictorial history book by Director Jack Gibson, documents the district’s role in the preservation of this beloved central landmark and the district’s work to ensure a reliable supply of high-quality water for Marin.
The book, from Arcadia Publishing, is available in local bookstores, at MMWD or may be ordered online. Proceeds benefit a fund to protect the Mt. Tamalpais Watershed. The book was written to commemorate MMWD’s 100th anniversary.
Director Gibson, a member of MMWD’s board of directors since 1995, is a practicing Marin County attorney as well as an avid historian and a former history teacher. In working on the book, he spent countless hours sifting through photos and documents in MMWD’s extensive archives. The book includes about 200 historical images.
