The new permanent exhibition being installed at the Los Altos History Museum features several notable residents from the early days (pre-1950) of the community.

The exhibition, “Making Connections: Stories from the Land,” spotlights people from across four sections of the display: Leland Smith (the town), Mary Golda Ross (the valley), Rose Marie Taaffe (the hills) and Shoichi Kagawa (the creeks). This article focuses on Kagawa.
