Plan to join the California Council for the Promotion of History in Arcadia this October 25-27 for another annual conference. During two days of sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to see and hear about some of the communities—geographical, vocational, racial, ethnic, and generational—that make up our state. We will have thought-provoking addresses by William Deverell, Professor of History at USC and Director of the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West, and by Thomas Hines, Professor Emeritus of History, Architecture, and Urban Design at UCLA. On Thursday, the California State Archives will offer a pre-conference workshop, “The Basics of Archives,” to area historical organizations, hosted by the Workman and Temple Family Homestead Museum in City of Industry. There will be field trips on Saturday to visit the Huntington Library’s wonderful new facility, and to join noted local historian John Robinson on an interpretive hike in Big Santa Anita Canyon. This will be a great conference with interesting and informative sessions in a fabulously ”ardcadian” location. We hope you will join us in exploring the rich historical landscapes of community in California.
