    Biographical / Historical Note

    Ed Silverbrand was a Sacramento lobbyist who represented various school districts throughout California. Born April 16, 1912, Ed eventually became a pilot in the Army Air Corps who trained other pilots in ground school. After receiving an honorable discharge, he became an elementary school principal from 1947 to 1967. Later, he went on to become a legislative advocate for the California Council of Adult Education.
    During the 1971 through 1993, Ed worked on "Update on State Legislation". The newsletter was a weekly report of Sacramento legislation pertaining to education. Eventually, due to quicker technology, the newsletter was replaced by the "Silver File" reports. Ed Silverbrand died on November 5, 2005.
