Architect M.J. Murphy, Carmel’s First and Foremost Builder

Carmel Public Library Foundation Presents:

From 1901 to 1941 Murphy and his contracting company was the “go to” for good building design and the materials to construct them. He helped frame the village’s commercial and residential eclectic character, and for 17 years, the company he founded in 1904 continues to supply building material needs for the Monterey Peninsula community.

Join local architectural historian, Kent Seavey for an overview of Murphy’s contribution to the aesthetics and material support of our community.

Silent Spring Revolution: John F. Kennedy, Rachel Carson, Lyndon Johnson and the Great Sixties Environmental Awakening

Carmel Public Library Foundation Presents:

“The Kennedy-Carson vision of an America with “mastery of the sky and rain, the oceans and the tides” lived on in Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, igniting the grassroots modern environmental movement that would bring us such landmark legislation as the Clean Air Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, and the Endangered Species Act—all signed into law by President Richard Nixon.” – Douglas Brinkley
