Parker Kennedy Presentation on Sunday, October 9, 2011, 4:00-5:30 pm at the Heritage Museum of Orange County.
Parker S. Kennedy, Executive Chairman of First American Financial Corporation, will speak at Heritage Museum of Orange County about the role played by First American in the history of Orange County.
Parker is the great-grandson of C. E. Parker, who in 1894 merged the two small title companies serving the newly-independent Orange County to form Orange County Title Company. This small company was the immediate predecessor to today’s First American Title Insurance Company, the largest subsidiary of First American Financial Corporation.
As the oldest and one of the largest Orange County companies, First American has retained a strong interest in the County’s history. It maintains a collection of more than 12,500 historic photos of the county. These photos are accessible as a free public service and can be viewed by appointment. A selection of the photos is also available for viewing online.
Admission: $10 (includes a 3-month membership at the Heritage Museum of Orange County)
Gates open at 3:00 pm. Free parking is available.
Snacks and refreshments available at nominal prices.
