Bonnie Mae Barnard

Author Bonnie Mae Barnard and her husband, Don, founded Save Historic Old Torrance (, dedicated to preserving the historic landmarks in the city of Torrance. The Barnards live in the historic Zamperini House, named for Louis Zamperini, a record-setting track star who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Using photographs of Old Torrance families, Barnard has crafted this unique paean to the "original Torrance."
