An Interview with Ed Bowles, March 6, 2012

Posted by Rose Ann Woolpert on Mar 18, 2015

Ed Bowles was born in 1936 in Eagle Pass, Texas, just over the Rio Grande from Piedras Negras, Mexico. Ed’s dad was a border patrolman for the U.S. Customs Agency, his mom was from Mexico, and Ed grew up bilingual. “We’d talk to Daddy in English and Mama in Spanish.” When he was ten, Ed’s parents decided that California would be a better place to raise a family, and they moved to Aromas. Living near the Quarry, Ed and his friends would swim in the lake at the top of the hill and use the showers by the old Quarry softener house. He also remembers swimming with friends in the Pajaro River. “We used to dive in and ride through the culvert pipe near the Quarry. We’d hold our breath, the current would shoot us across and we’d come out the other side.”
