The Lester Years

The Lester Family, San Miguel Island (From 1930-1942) Marianne Miguel was born in 1931, followed by Elizabeth "Betsy" Edith in 1933. The Lesters received nationwide attention for their Swiss Family Robinson-style existence; the girls were schooled on the island in "the tiniest schoolhouse in the world," according to press reports. The family seldom went to the mainland. Robert Brooks had supplies delivered irregularly by boat, weather permitting, and fishermen often visited, leaving fish and supplies.
