December 31, 1990 | Diane Baker, Executive director, Hungtington Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau
My personal goal is to create a (community) awareness on the many assets Hungtington Beach has to offer. I want to build a quality photo and slide library that truly represents the image of Huntington Beach. Through marketing and promotion, I want to place Huntington Beach on the map as an ideal conference, tour and leisure destination.

Diane Baker's professional acting career began by her performing a scene from the 1955 James Dean movie "East of Eden." "I did the scene for three studios," says the vivacious 71-year-old. "That's all I ever did. I never went on an audition. I got offered contracts with CBS, Paramount and Fox. My agent came to me and said, 'You got offers from all three. Let's pick the best one.' It turned out to be Fox." Baker, who is celebrating her 50th year as an actress, has appeared in such classic films as "The Diary of Anne Frank," "Marnie" and the Oscar-winning best film "The Silence of the Lambs."

Anne Frank put a human face on the horrors of the Holocaust, thanks to the gift of an autograph book she received for her 13th birthday on June 12, 1942. It was just a month before her Jewish family went into hiding from the Nazis in rooms in her father Otto Frank's office building. Until they were betrayed to the Nazis, arrested and sent to concentration camps in 1944, Anne Frank skillfully wrote, in the red-and-green-plaid cloth book with a small lock, about her life in the attic.

"If you sit there and watch, you'd be amazed at how many people are just putting out cigarette butts on sidewalks," said Diane Baker, president of the Huntington Beach Visitor and Conference Bureau, at the July 23 meeting. To discourage smokers from littering, the committee discussed placing ashtrays around light poles.

And the lucky city is: Phoenix, in July, a time when the city's residents are probably thinking that anywhere is cooler than home. Fifteen trips for couples will be given away during the four-week promotion in partnership with America West Airlines and Phoenix's KTAR radio station.
