Founder’s Perspective – Closing Speech by Betty Peabody from Friends of Balboa Park Annual Awards Luncheon
We share with you here the wonderful remarks made by our Founder, Betty Peabody, at our recent Awards Luncheon.
Thank you Clark and Iris! All of you have certainly inspired all of us! How many of you were here for the 1935 Exposition? Franklin D. Roosevelt came to Balboa Park, both as Secretary of the Navy and later, as President. In a depression era speech he advised and encouraged Americans to “build from the bottom up.” To download and view the rest of Betty’s speech, click here.
