California Historian

The California Historian is the Conference of California Historical Societies flagship publication. As time permits, we will be posting an index of important articles of past issues. Some of the articles and book reviews will be posted on this site. 

The California Historian is uniquely "Sharing California's Heritage." Since 1954, first as a newsletter then a magazine, it has provided great articles and information. "It's a must for all history buffs." So begin reading and enjoying it, as others already do!
