Prue Draper is Cotati's long-time historian. She and her late husband, Lloyd, who owned The Cotatian weekly newspaper from 1951 to 1965, collected Cotati historic documents, artifacts, and memorabilia for over 50 years, hoping that some day the city would have an appropriate place to store and display them, and make them available to the public. As various organizations in town disbanded, they entrusted their records and artifacts to the Drapers with the understanding that they would be appropriately preserved. They established the Cotati Historical Society in 2007, and helped create the Cotati Museum in 2009.
