Coming Attractions – Fourth Annual Archives Bazaar

William Dotson of USC sends along a reminder of the fourth annual Archives Bazaar, which will be held Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 5  p.m. at USC’s Davidson Conference Center. Admission is free.

The bazaar, presented by L.A. as Subject, is an essential introduction for anyone planning to research Los Angeles because the city is a vast subject and historical materials have been preserved in astonishing places. Many times, the location of an item has nothing to do with its origin. To cite one of my favorite examples: Material on the early history of USC’s Medical School is at UCLA Medical School’s Special Collections. In the same way, material from the Los Angeles Times can be found at UCLA Special Collections (photos) and the Huntington Library (documents).

More information is here>>>

And there’s a Facebook page>>>
