Half a century later, a motorist's kindness to a hitchhiker is remembered beneath a shady grove of oaks, alders and sycamores next to a rock-strewn streambed and roaring waterfall. The tiny slice of wilderness in Agoura Hills is marked with a hand-hewn wooden sign that proclaims it to be the "Lee Haines Garden of Native Plants of the Santa Monica Mountains." "Lee changed my life," says Edward Gripp. "I owe so much to him."

Over the last 63 years, they've become experts on the weather in the western San Fernando Valley. So when operators of Pierce College's campus weather station suggested that those attending the unveiling of a major station upgrade bring umbrellas, people paid attention.

Nonetheless, meteorology professors had canvas canopies on hand just in case the skies opened up before the speechmaking was over.
