Hardcore Natural History Series — “The Browns of California: The Family Dynasty That Transformed a State”

Join the Museum as we sit down with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Miriam Pawel to discuss her book, The Browns of California: The Family Dynasty That Transformed a State and Shaped a Nation. The book begins with Brown’s great-grandfather, Prussian immigrant August Schuckman, who crossed the Plains in 1852 and settled on a northern California ranch. Over a century later, Jerry Brown became the youngest governor in modern times — then returned three decades later as the oldest. Through the story of this political family, we will explore the history of California itself.
