History comes alive once again on Saturday, October 21, 2017, as dozens of Southern California’s rare and archival materials come together at the 12th annual daylong Los Angeles Archives Bazaar. Each year, serious researchers, history buffs, and Californiana enthusiasts come to experience a number of Southern California exhibits, documentary film screenings, educational sessions, and other public programming. A distinguishing feature of the bazaar is that unique, private collections and less-visible archives are represented alongside materials from large institutions, helping to tell a more complete story of Los Angeles history.

Look for the California Historical Society booth at this year’s bazaar. Learn about our Los Angeles–area collections housed at the Autry Museum and USC; ongoing projects and collections in both San Francisco and Los Angeles; and statewide opportunities, including our annual California Historical Society Book Award and traveling exhibitions. 

Every year, CHS archivists and staff are on hand at our booth, answering questions, sharing information, and selling books. This year, we offer our newest co-publications: The City of Vines: A History of Wine in Los Angeles (CHS/Heyday), winner of the 2016 California Historical Society Book Award, and ¡Murales Rebeldes! L.A. Chicana/Chicano Murals under Siege (CHS/LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes in association with Angel City Press), the companion publication of our current exhibition now on view at LA Plaza.
