Phillip Noble
Historical Documents & Autographs

Phillip H. Noble is a docent at two of California's most historic sites. He has served at both the California State Capitol and the Leland Stanford Mansion State Historic Park for over nine years providing tours and historic interpretation.

Mr. Noble was born in Louisville, KY, but spent most of his youth in Southern California. After graduating from San Diego State University in 1973, he moved to Sacramento to begin a career with the State of California. He started as an analyst and subsequently became a manager. Later, Mr. Noble earned a Juris Doctor Degree and was admitted to the California State Bar, eventually becoming a state attorney. He worked in State government for 34 years before retiring in early 2008, when he started his volunteer docent work.

Although his career path led him into government and law, Mr. Noble has always had a deep interest in history and especially United States History. As a young man and later as an adult, he has enjoyed reading about history and visiting historical sites, battlefields and museums. This love of history not only resulted in Mr. Noble becoming a docent, but also led him into the area of collecting historical documents and signatures. His collection includes items signed by presidents, vice presidents, first ladies, Supreme Court justices, and California governors.

One recent addition to his collection is a signed letter he received from a sitting United States Supreme Court Justice, thanking Mr. Noble for a tour of the Stanford Mansion he gave to the Justice, his wife and some colleagues.

Mr. Noble currently resides in Sacramento with his wife Kathleen Noble. He has two daughters and seven grandchildren that range in age from 2 to 13. He tries to stay physically active by playing Senior Men's baseball and skiing.

Mr. Noble's presentation will involve sharing and discussing some of his document collection with the group. This will include items signed by some of our founding fathers. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to view and hold some history in their hands.

Who We Are
The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) are direct descendants of those patriots that achieved the independence of the American people. The objectives of our organization are intended to perpetuate a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
The Purpose of Our Society
The SAR is a historical, educational, and patriotic United States 501(c)3 non-profit organization that seeks to maintain and extend:
  • the institutions of American freedom
  • an appreciation for true patriotism
  • a respect for our national symbols
  • the value of American citizenship
  • the unifying force of e pluribus unum that has created, from the people of many nations, one nation and one people.
We do this by perpetuating the stories of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, tragedy, and triumph of the men who achieved the independence of the American people in the belief that these stories are universal ones of man's eternal struggle against tyranny, relevant to all time, and will inspire and strengthen each succeeding generation as it too is called upon to defend our freedoms on the battlefield and in our public institutions.

Preserve the memory of those whose service and sacrifice during the American Revolution secured independence for the American people.
  • Unite and promote fellowship among their descendants.
  • Inspire them and the Community with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers.
  • Encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution.
  • Maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, an appreciation for true patriotism, a respect for our national symbols, and the value of American citizenship.
  • Promote the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution.
