About this Event

The Histories of California in 10 Objects

Saturday, October 19, 2019, 1 – 5 p.m.

Join San Francisco archival repositories for San Francisco’s THIRD Archives Crawl.

San Francisco’s Archives Crawl is designed to celebrate archives in the Bay Area and encourages guests to explore and engage with institutions that collect, preserve, and provide access to archival material.

Visit institutions you may not have visited before, pose questions, learn more about what an archive is and what archivists do, and view archival materials closeup.

The theme for the crawl is The Historiesof California in 10 Objects and we are celebrating in October which is American Archives Month!

Pick your own starting point at one of these two institutions. Aim to set a personal goal of visiting both locations!
