About this collection

Since 1976, the Los Angeles City Historical Society has worked to disseminate knowledge of the rich and diverse multicultural history of the city of Los Angeles. [The Society is] also the official Friends of the Los Angeles City Archives. (http://www.lacityhistory.org/).

Included in this collection are issues of the Los Angeles City Historical Society Newsletter beginning with the first issue published in 1978. Editors for the Newsletter have been:

  • Bob Hattem (1978-1986)
  • Don Ray (1986-1988)
  • Portia Lee (1990-1996)
  • Anita King (1996-2003)
  • Irene Tresun (2004-2013)
  • Anna Sklar (2013-date)

In 1992, with what would have been volume XIV, the numbering got out of increment when it jumped to volume XIX. There was an attempt to bring it back in line in 2005 by changing the volume from then XXXI to XXV. Unfortunately it missed the mark by one as it should have been corrected to XXVI instead. Titles of the issues in this collection show the correct volume number rather than the volume printed on the issue; but an Alternate title and Description indicate the actual volume number printed on the issue.

We are grateful to Louise Smith who provided the Newsletters in this collection to us.
