While current information in today’s instantaneous environment is available on our smart devices and laptops almost effortlessly, records from the pre-digital era are not always as accessible.

San Diego City Clerk Elizabeth Maland has been on a mission to change this scenario with an ambitious multi-year project aimed at ensuring records — including the 1856 Pueblo maps of the region — are available for generations of people to come.

Downtown residents Arlene and Richard Esgate understand the importance of giving back and strive to make a difference in San Diego and beyond.

Whether advocating for Balboa Park or serving on the board of the Mainly Mozart Festival, the Esgates put their wallets where their hearts lie. They are major donors to Childhelp, a national child-abuse prevention and treatment organization. In 2012, Childhelp gave the couple the “Founders for the Love of a Child” award for their dedication and support. Giving is what the Esgates do.
