TEMECULA – Nick Cataldo, a writer and historian from San Bernardino, will present “The Legendary Earp Clan in Southern California,” Monday, April 24. The lecture will be held at Little Temecula History Center, 32075 Redhawk Parkway, located next to Kohls at the corner of Wolf Store Road and Redhawk Parkway.
While the story of Wyatt Earp lives on in books, movies and even a 1950s-television series, the focus has always been on his “lawman” escapades in Tombstone. The truth is, he lived there just a little over two years. What is not well-known is that his entire family spent most of their lives in Southern California’s San Bernardino County.
Cataldo has done more research on this subject than anyone. He has interviewed old-timers who knew the Earp family, and he has reviewed all known photographs and documents regarding them. “The Legendary Earp Clan in Southern California” tells the seldom-mentioned stories of the family’s many years living in the neighborhood.
Cataldo’s books on the Earp family and on San Bernardino will be available for purchase following his presentation.
This presentation will be open to the public, and refreshments will be served during a brief social time beginning at 5:30 p.m.
