Louise Arner Boyd, born in the late 19th century, grew up on San Rafael Hill in the home purchased by her grandmother. The home we call Maple Lawn. She avoided every expectation of a young woman of her day. Passing on marriage and raising a family she became an arctic explorer best known for her photography, land surveying, and scientific expeditions of Greenland.  Louise was a member of the National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in California.
