This collection consists of papers gathered by Sue Higman in her roles as board member and officer of several local Santa
Barbara organizations, her correspondence on environmental issues, and papers related to the Early Mission Music Program.
Susanna Baat Higman was born in 1920 and grew up and lived in Santa Barbara her entire life. She is best known for her volunteerism
with civic, cultural, historical and environmental organizations and activities. Taught a love of nature by her father Arthur,
who took her hiking and backpacking, she devoted much time and energy from 1954 on to the Sierra Club and the California State
Parks Foundation, as well as to many local organizations such as GOO (Get Oil Out), the Community Environmental Council, Small
Wilderness Area Preserves, and the Santa Barbara County Environmental Resources Panel, to name a few.
