From Ocean Beach Historical Society: The Ocean Beach Historical Society invites you to our program “Fred Baker, M.D., pioneer San Diego physician and civic activist.” By Jim Baker, Thurs., Aug. 18, 7 pm at P.L. United Methodist Church, 1984 Sunset Cliffs Blvd., O.B.
Jim Baker is a decent of one of Point Loma’s founding families. He will discuss his great-grandfather “Dr. Fred,” from his younger days in Ohio, to his arrival in San Diego in 1888. Dr. Fred Baker moved to Point Loma in 1898, to a home at 848 Rosecrans. Jim will highlight many of Dr. Fred’s civic activities. He’ll touch on his wife, Dr. Charlotte Baker, the first female M.D. in San Diego, who was well known for delivering over 1,000 babies.
Jim will also talk about Fred’s son Robert H. Baker and his early activities in San Diego, and his later life on Point Loma, with some reference to the Portuguese community. Jim will talk about his dad Ken Baker (Dr. Fred’s grandson), and his involvement with boating.
Please join us Aug. 18th in learning about the history of Dr. Fred Baker and the generations who followed.
