'Wine & Lecture:' Coronado Doctor/Island Life In Early 1900s

Mary Ellen Cortellini, noted historical researcher and author of three books, will spin an intriguing tale of Coronado in days gone by during CHA’s next “Wine & Lecture” event, Friday, June 14, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., at the Coronado Historical Association.

Hers is a fascinating story about long-time Coronado resident, Army Surgeon William L. Kneedler, who came to Coronado after serving as Post Surgeon at Fort Rosecrans. Kneedler served the Coronado community as a doctor for many years in the early 1900s, when he and his family lived in the historic Kneedler-Morton house that he built first on Ocean Boulevard, and later moved to its present location at 10th and Adella.

Mary Ellen’s lecture promises a glimpse through a window in time to a period rarely documented by historians, with charming details about family living in Coronado, the military connection that San Diego and Coronado experienced, and a house that, even today, is enjoying yet another historic restoration.

This next event in CHA's on-going “Wine & Lecture Series” is free to the public. Wine will be served for a $5 donation, as well as water and iced tea. No RSVP required. Kneedler books will be available for purchase and author signings.

Location: Coronado Historical Association, 1100 Orange Avenue Coronado CA 92118 Google Map
