He is also responsible for scheduling, and teaching many of, the Tuesday afternoon classes sponsored by the society and the Corona Public Library. Len retired from Boeing (formally Rockwell International) in January 1999, after 33 years of service; he received his BSEE degree from Pennsylvania State University and MSEE from California State University at Long Beach. Len is an experienced and accomplished speaker in various related fields; he became interested in family history about 40 years ago when he received memorabilia on his family from a first cousin once removed. From that point on, he was hooked on genealogy and sought out every fact, photo, letter, family history, etc. he could get from his family.
