Blog Coverage of 7th-Annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar
USC's Doheny Memorial Library hosted the 7th-annual Los Angeles Archives Bazaar this past Saturday, October 27. Organized by L.A. as Subject and presented by the USC Libraries, the event brought archivists, librarians, researchers, and history buffs together for a daylong celebration of Los Angeles history.
The news blog LAist highlighted the event through a slideshow of "weird and wonderful artifacts" on display.
The event is run by L.A. as Subject – a network of private collectors, research libraries, and other archives that serves as a treasure trove of information for people interested in the unique, fascinating, and otherwise sadly unknown history of the Los Angeles area. I have been of fan of this group for a while – I think their KCET blog posts are some of the best historical L.A. writing around – so I was really excited to see some of their goods first-hand … and let me tell you I was not disappointed.
