COPH is delighted that the William Lyon Family pledged $150,00 in 2014 to support the Renovation and Expansion Initiative.  The Center has captured and preserved the memories of Major Gen. William Lyon, a prominent business and philanthropic leader in Orange County and former Chief of the Air Force Reserve.  Moreover, COPH recorded 120 hours of narration with Abraham (Al) Lyon, General Lyon’s father, on reel-to-reel tape in 1975 that has now been digitized.
