Author/historian and Palm Springs Preservation Foundation board advisor Steve Vaught invites you to meet Tom O’Donnell, one of the most extraordinary and transformative figures in the history of Palm Springs. Join Steve as he reveals Tom’s incredible journey from lowly oilfield roughneck to industry giant and how he used those same talents to help transform Palm Springs from a sleepy little village into an internationally renowned resort. Palm Springs would still be here today, but it would be far less without the vision and kind spirit of Tom O’Donnell. This lecture is in conjunction with the release of PSPF’s newest tribute journal, Tom O’Donnell: Generous Spirit of Palm Springs, by Steve Vaught, Steven Keylon & Tracy Conrad.
