1950s: “Build Pillar Point Breakwater and this Coast will Grow Beyond Anyone’s Imagination,” Katherine Middleton

Katherine Middleton was known as the “honorary mayor” of Princeton in the 1940s and 50s. She died at age 96 in 1957.

She was the center of attention at many political and social events, an ardent supporter of what the future could hold for Princeton-by-the-Sea.

Katherine became famous for telling anyone who would listen: “Build Pillar Point Breakwater and this Coast will grow beyond anyone’s imagination.”

But where are the photographs of Katherine Middleton? Where is her family? There are a group of folks interested in naming the boat at the corner of Highway 1 and Capistrano the “Katherine Middleton.” Sounds like a great idea—if you have pictures of Katherine, or any leads, please let us know.
