Oral history interview with Ronald Duarte

Oral history interview with Ronald Duarte

  • 2006-Jun-13

Ronald Duarte begins the interview by discussing his family history, and how the family came to settle in Pescadero, California. Duarte and Gordon E. Moore grew up together in Pescadero, until Moore and his family moved away in the late 1930s. Duarte and Moore attended the same grammar school, although Moore was a year older than Duarte and they did not take any classes together. Duarte recalls fond memories of Moore's mother, and memories of Moore's two brothers. Duarte and Moore kept in touch for a time after Moore moved to Redwood City, California, from Pescadero, and now they only see each other when Moore visits Pescadero.
