Local History Newspapers & Maps

A file of articles on selected topics clipped from local newspapers, such as the Palos Verdes Peninsula News, the Daily Breeze, and the Los Angeles Times, present historical as well as contemporary coverage.  The newsprint articles are copied onto acid-free paper, with access provided by a card catalog subject index.

Biographical sketches of Peninsulans combine with other popular files on farming, landslides, peacocks, shipwrecks, Wayfarers chapel, and whales.

Local History Maps

A small group of historic and topographical maps of the Peninsula comprise the map collection.

These are currently undergoing re-organization, but are available for perusal with docent assistance.
