CONGRATULATIONS TO MILES KNUDSON
Miles Knudson ----- First Librarian of Campo de Cahuenga -----
------ Businessman and Historical Preservationist
At the last board meeting of the Friends of Campo de Cahuenga Historical Society, president Deuk Perrin announced the appointment of Miles Knudson as Campo's first acting Librarian.
The decision to create a significant research library was made by the board of the Campo three months ago. Mr. Knudson will oversee the beginning of a library focused on the Treaty of Cahuenga, the era of Spanish and Mexican ranchos, and the role Campo has played in American history. A collection honoring Mrs. Armitage Forbes, founder of the Campo Friends and the bells marking El Camino Real, is also in the planning stage.
Miles Knudson is a recognized leader in the effort to preserve and enhance Campo de Cahuenga. He is a graduate of the University of California Los Angeles, where he majored in history. One of his first experiences out of college was working for the Special Collections at UCLA's rare books library, as supervisor for stack operations. He and his wife are partners in a marketing firm in Los Angeles.
Congratulations to Miles Knudson from the Museum Community working to bring about The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.
