Grace Baldwin was born in San Francisco, traveled to Southern California to attend college, has remained in Southern California and now lives in Grand Terrace.
In the fourth grade, Grace became interested in music and began studying the flute, continued with lessons, and played in the orchestra at Pomona College where she graduated with a degree in Mathematics, raised four children. (When her children came along, the flute ended up in the closet until her daughters played the flute as they grew up!)
Grace received a credential from California State University, San Bernardino, to teach Mathematics. Several years into teaching, she felt that it was necessary to gain more knowledge and graduated from Claremont University with a Master of Arts in Mathematics. Her teaching gave her a chance to show young women that women could really have a career in the Mathematics field.
Grace joined the San Bernardino Symphony Board in 2008 and serves as its Secretary. She is also a very active member of the San Bernardino Symphony’s volunteer Guild and served as Guild President from 2006-2008.
In addition, Grace helped found the California Retired Teachers Association Division 91 that covers Fontana, Rialto and Colton retirees and served as its first president. She has been a member of the American Association of University Women San Gorgonio Branch since her graduation from college, serving as president and active participant on the board. She is a docent at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Art Museum on the Cal State Campus where sixth graders are guests of the museum when they study Egyptian history in school.
