Santa Clara Valley Archives Crawl

archives crawl 2016

Join us at the California History Center for the first Santa Clara Annual Archives Crawl on Saturday, October 22, 2016 and learn more. Visit each of our eleven participating archives, museum and special collections locations for special displays and programs.

Local history and California Studies are the specialties of the Stocklmeir Library and Archives, a program of the California History Center at De Anza College in Cupertino. Our collections include photographs, oral history, student research, and other evidence of life and transition in the Santa Clara Valley. The Audrey Edna Butcher Civil Liberties Education Initiative has added a new dimension to our mission as we document the experiences of politically marginalized communities in our region. Participants in Archive Crawl will test their experience, knowledge, and imagination using historic photographs, maps, and other fascinating items in the Stocklmeir collections. Special for Fall Quarter - On display in the exhibit hall will be regional photography by the Los Gatos-Saratoga Camera Club titled "Caught Celebrating" - featuring California festival life. Come visit us in our late-19th century pavilion and Historic Corridor on the De Anza College campus!

The California History Center will be open from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m.
