Palisadian Speaks at Trojan Guild of L.A. Meeting

The Trojan Guild of Los Angeles held its first general meeting of the school year at the USC Davidson Center in October.

Palisadian Dr. Kenneth D. Hill spoke to members and guests about the Los Angeles Arboretum, where he is a trustee, and the Botanic Gardens in Arcadia. Hill is a former student at the University of Southern California, where he received his Ph.D.

Hill’s speech, “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” summarized the history of the original Spanish land grant of Rancho Santa Anita. In 1845 Hugo Reid and his bride established their adobe home and ranch in the city of Arcadia. Visit: arboretum.org. The Trojan Guild has been an active women’s philanthropic support group at USC since 1960. The organization has raised money for many scholarships while enjoying friendship and intellectual enrichment through speakers from many USC departments. Events are held throughout the year.
