Location: Thornton Theater, San Diego History Center
Tickets: Free with Give Forward admission

Community Historians are trained volunteers and staff who bring their passion for San Diego history to your community meetings and organizations through informative talks. Our speakers can introduce visitors and tourists to San Diego history or else dive deep into the details of a unique San Diego topic.

Program presentations are illustrated with historic photos and documents from our Research Archives.

On the second Tuesday of each month, watch a Community Historian presentation at 1 pm in our Thornton Theater. Each lecture is free with “Give Forward” admission.

This week’s topic:

San Diego History 1900-1985: This presentation picks up where the presentation “San Diego History to 1915” ends. Moving forward in time, this presentation looks at some of the major regional, national, and international forces that shaped the city – the Great Depression, World War II, and the post-war trends of urban-flight and redevelopment.


Check back soon for more information on upcoming Community Historian presentations.
