The San Diego Corral of the Westerners Records document the publishing history and administrative organization of this non-profit entity dedicated to preserving the history
of the American West. These records include correspondence, meeting notices and minutes, event information, membership rosters,
financial statements, and documentation of the Corral’s creative output such as newsletters, book production materials, and
sample book artwork. Although the collection dates from 1921-2013, the bulk of the materials primarily date from 1967-2012.
The San Diego Corral of the Westerners Records is divided into six series: Administrative,
Brand Book Production,
The Wrangler Newsletter, Events, Lauren Post Files, and Associated Corrals.
The San Diego Corral of the Westerners is part of the Westerners non-profit organization, which began in 1944 and has both
national and international membership. Chartered in 1967, the San Diego Corral of the Westerners was formed by people invested
in sharing their love and knowledge of various facets of the American West. Additionally, the Corral was affiliated with
Westerners International, a non-profit foundation first established in 1959 to facilitate communication and cooperation between
the various Corrals and assist in the organization of new Corrals.
