"From Adobe Bricks to Adobe Bytes: Historical Transformations in California" is the theme for the 2006 conference of the California Council for the Promotion of History, which will take place October 26-28 in San Jose, California, at the historic St. Claire Hotel. New State Archivist Nancy Zimmelman will kick off the conference as the plenary session speaker, speaking on the topic of archives in the digital age. Breakout session topics range from historically significant road building projects to the evolution of agricultural landscapes to environmental living programs in California's state parks. Special activities include the traditional opening reception, awards luncheon, and annual banquet, featuring live jazz music, and three optional tours to Moffett Field's wooden blimp hangars, Santa Clara University's archaeological site, and San Jose's Japantown.
