As author, artist, historian, Dr. Patricia Daly-Lipe notes, history is biography. Not just a litany of events, history involves personal stories. Dr. Daly-Lipe has written eight books, including several pertaining to periods of history: Patriot Priest, The Story of Monsignor William A. Hemmick, the Vatican’s First American Canon (her great uncle served troops in WWI); Helen Holt: Memoir of a Servant Leader (who served under 8 Presidents, establishing nursing homes and elder care across the country); A Cruel Calm, Paris Between the Wars (Dr. Daly-Lipe’s mother’s story based on 14 years of research); La Jolla, A Celebration of Its Past.
A new book, La Jolla Chronicles will be published by History Press this year; it brings her personal perspectives as she grew up in both La Jolla, CA and Washington, DC, and was acquainted with many people described in the book including Roger Revelle, Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss), and Cliff Robertson.
Dr. Daly-Lipe’s books will be available for purchase and signing.
