Led by Resident Storytellers, Steve Goldstein and Joe

cemeteries. Built in 1877, Evergreen existing cemetery
in the city of Los Angeles; it is one of the city's
largest cemeteries, with 300,000 grave sites. City
pioneers like the Workmans, Hollenecks, and Van Nuys
families are buried here as well as lesser known but
equally fascinating Los Angelenos. The cemetery also
has a special section called the Garden of the Pines,
which memorializes Issei pioneers of Los Angeles. 19
th century midwife Biddy Mason, a slave who earned her
freedom through the California courts, is also buried
here.

Steve Goldstein was born in Boston, Massachusetts,
where he developed his love of cemeteries at a very
early age. Moving to Southern California at the age of
18, he continued and studying and began his vast
collection of photographs of the graves of what he
calls "The Famous, the Infamous, and the Just Plain
Dead" that make up his as-yet unpublished book,
"Beneath Los Angeles." The collection has become a
favorite website for many over the past eight years at
www.BeneathLosAngeles.com and has led to Mr. Goldstein
being frequently interviewed, including the Los
Angeles Times, the Orange County Register, KABC AM
Radio, NPR and many other media venues.

Joe Walker is a Crime Analyst with the Los Angeles
County Sheriff's Department and has been with the
department since 1986. In that capacity, he has worked
numerous patrol stations and special unit assignments,
including Robbery and Homicide. In 1995-1996, he
assisted best selling author James Ellroy, (L.A.
Confidential, Black Dahlia). His most recent work was
as a contributing writer to the five volume series,
"Famous American Crimes and Trials" published in
December, 2004 by Greenwood Publishers. Walker wrote
about the 1942 "Sleepy Lagoon" murders in Los Angeles
and the subsequent "Zoot Suit." Most recently, he is
assisting the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children in the 1957 case of Tommy Bowman.
