Lynette Mullen is an independent project manager and local historian. Her accidental discovery of historic documents, which described the brutal murder of a young mother in the presence of her children in Arcata in 1862, fostered an obsession with the settlement period in Northern California. Her research has since expanded and has been shared in articles, presentations, a TedX talk and multiple OLLI courses.
