Ed Peterson, Theodore Payne Society

Happy birthday!

We celebrated in Council Chambers the centenary of Ed Peterson, founding board member of the Theodore Payne Society. Mr. Peterson, a UCLA grad and Hollywood native helped create the Wild Seed Collection program at the foundation, which is dedicated to the protection and appreciation of California's wildflowers. Chief Legislative Analyist John Wickham, also pictured, is the president of the Society.
