Del Mar Foundation Archives

1981 – 1982

The Del Mar Foundation celebrates 1982 as its anniversary year, though preliminary work to establish the Foundation occurred in 1981. These archival records show that although the Foundation was established in part to manage the Del Mar Day event and its finances, the founding Directors (Lou Terrell, Joel Holliday, and Bill Kirwin) articulated an expansive and ambitious vision for the fledgling organization, including cultural and arts programming, raising and granting funds for the benefit of the Del Mar community, supporting the City’s acquisition of open space and other key properties for public use, and establishing an endowment to meet long-term needs.
