October 29 - Greg Fischer
Greg is a historical expert on the development of Westwood. Born in Santa Monica, California in 1952, and raised in the Westwood section of Los Angeles, he attended St. Paul the Apostle Grammar School and Daniel Murphy High School (1970). He went on to Loyola University of Los Angeles (now LMU) graduating in 1974 with a BA in Political Science.
Greg has been active in civic affairs for years including serving as president and board member of the HolmbyWestwood Property Owners Association, member of the parish council for St. Paul the Apostle Church and a member of the Westwood Village Chamber of Commerce, during a period of about 10 years when he worked in Westwood Village running a business. A member of Downtown Cathedral Associates, he also formed a group of Downtown residents to work on the Police Administration Building perimeter as there was no current funding to maintain the exterior of the site (this situation has been corrected). He holds a seat on the Los Angeles Regional History Planning Group which meets at the Huntington Library.
He will present a series of photos showing and discussing how Westwood Village began along with the surrounding neighborhoods.
