One of the most important California governors of the post-World War II era is Governor Edmund G "Pat" Brown. Here, we take a look at his career and family, and of the time he helped shaped through the eyes of his granddaughter, documentary filmmaker Sascha Rice. Career highlights that are depicted include the creation of California's Master Plan for higher education, the massive state water project that pitted Northern and Southern California against each other, the controversial fair housing act, and Brown's epic political campaigns against Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.
