On Saturday, October 17th, USC Libraries is hosting the 4th annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar.
For local historians, and historians-in-training, this is an event you simply can’t afford to miss. Presented by L.A. as Subject, USC’s alliance dedicated to preserving LA history, you will have the opportunity to browse rare collections from over 60 historical archives including universities, museums and community organizations. There will be a slew of experts on hand and you’ll have the chance to chat with a number of authors and documentary filmmakers. Educational sessions are slated with the likes of Robert Birchard (author of Cecil B DeMille’s Hollywood) and forensic genealogist Colleen Fitzpatrick who will bestow tips and techniques for household archivists.
If you have a research project involving Los Angeles as its subject, or even just a supporting character, it is absolutely imperative event to attend.
Admission is free. For more information, including a complete list of participating exhibitors, visit USC’s L.A. as Subject site:
