Thursday, November 17
Lecture & Book Signing
SOHO welcomes author & historian Richard Crawford for a lecture on his new book The Way We Were in San Diego.

About the Book
In this collection of articles from his San Diego Union-Tribune column "The Way We Were," Richard W. Crawford recounts stories from the city's early history that once splashed across the headlines. Read about Ruth Alexander's aviation feats, the water pipeline carved from Humboldt County redwoods, the jailbreak of a man facing ten years in San Quentin for cow theft, a visit from escape artist Harry Houdini and the Purity League's closure of the Stingaree red-light district. These stories highlight San Diego's evolution from a humble frontier port to the city it is today.

About the author
Richard Crawford is the Supervisor of Special Collections at the San Diego Public Library. Born in Long Beach, he has been a San Diegan since 1973. In his thirty-year career as a historian and archivist, he has written extensively on local history, including the book Stranger Than Fiction: Vignettes of San Diego History, and over 170 articles for the San Diego Union-Tribune.
