Diego area in 1960. The “Torrey Pines Institute” was added to the corporate name. The primary purpose of the organization

rosters, meeting agendas, financial statements, pamphlets, and booklets. Provenance unknown but possibly belonging to Clara
E. Breed, San Diego City Librarian, who served on the T.P.I. Board of Trustees.
