Independent scholar Roberta H. Martinez shares an intimate look at Pasadena’s earliest days as reflected in the romance, marriage, and work of writers Arturo Bandini and Helen Elliott Bandini; melding the legacies of
Old California and a changing sensibility to women’s identity and roles: connections with the Valley Hunt Club,
Greene and Greene architecture, Charles Lummis and even a connection with the Manhattan Project.
