I sometimes picture my farm as a battlefield with troops of people struggling with nature in a hundred-year war.

Germans, Italians, Chinese and Japanese, Armenians, Filipinos, and Mexicans---their voices have sounded over this farm, their families have walked these rows . . .

Shown here seated in the center, wife and mother Captola "Cappie" Barrett built a career in the 1950s and 1960s as a leader of Fresno's women's clubs and charitable organizations all while displaying charm and grace in her signature hats. Join us for a preview of this exciting exhibit titled Cappie Barrett Wore Many Hats that celebrates the life and community service of Mrs. Barrett through her gloriously diverse hat collection.
