About the Author:
“Pat Jollota retired from the Los Angeles Police Department and came to Vancouver to find a new career in historic preservation. She was curator of education at the Clark County Historical Museum for 22 years, while almost concurrently serving for 20 years on the Vancouver City Council. ”
Excerpt from Tom Vogt’s article in the Columbian, a quote of Jack Burkman, Vancouver City Council,
“Ms. Jollota is an unsurpassed historian of our area, possessing exceptional knowledge and the ability to share that knowledge with others through humor and a uniquely personal touch.” (2012).
Excerpt from Dean Baker’s article in the Oregonian,
“Jollota says history should be fun. ‘People are funny and tragic and exciting, and I think if people know their community, they will preserve it and protect it.’… She doesn't write for profit.” (2013).
