Ed Kinney was a resident of Pleasanton for many years and was probably one of the biggest promoters of the city. He was a former mayor and is probably best remembered as the emcee of  the  parades in the downtown where he broadcast from the balcony of the Pleasanton Hotel. His involvement and service to the city inspired both the Ed Kinney lecture series and the Ed Kinney Community Patriot Award  The 10 month lecture series introduces participants to a variety of topics of local, regional and national history interest that often times relates to the current exhibtion at the Museum.

Population(s) Served
