Carole Hyde Gave a Talk on the 100-Year History of PAHS
November 2, 2008 PAHS Executive Director Carole Hyde gave a talk on the 100-year history of PAHS on Sunday, November 2, 2008, to the members of the Palo Alto Historical Association. She discussed the rich history and significant accomplishments of the Palo Alto Humane Society and discussed how an organization survives a century of change. How many institutions do you know of that were part of Palo Alto life 100 years ago? What part did Mrs. Jane Stanford have in Palo Alto’s humane movement? What role did citizen outrage play? Why was the relationship between PAHS and Stanford University sometimes rocky? Her talk will be broadcast on local cable (Comcast) on the public access channels throughout the month of December on a program called “Heritage”. In the Palo Alto area, Heritage is normally broadcast on Channel 30, at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, at noon on Thursdays, and at 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays. To check broadcast times on other channels, check your cable guide or the Media Center website.
