Third Thursday Author Series: Early National City
Coauthors Marilyn Carnes and Matthew Nye present the history of National City and its many firsts.

Below the surface of bustling National City lies the story of olive and citrus orchards, grand Victorian homes, great wealth, and the coming of the first railroad. Founded in 1868 by Frank Kimball, National City is credited with multiple distinguished firsts. On the county level, the San Diego County Fair originated here, the first novel published was by a National City pioneer, the first free kindergarten opened here, the first automobile was built here, and the first railroad terminus was located here. On the state level, the first woman to serve as an elected member of a school board lived in National City. Today the city is home to 61,000 residents; and as an accessible and diverse community, all eyes now look upon National City as it begins to experience a renaissance of growth and commerce.

Matthew Nye and Marilyn Carnes have both kindled their love of National City history while working in the Morgan Local History Room of the National City Public Library. Combining his degrees in History and Library Science, Nye was the librarian for the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego. He is currently a librarian for the National City Public Library. Carnes has lived in National City for over 30 years while restoring her Victorian home. The vintage photographs they have gathered are largely from the collection of the National City Public Library.
