Biography

The Stockton Cultural Heritage Board was created in 1966 to identify architecturally and historically significant buildings in Stockton, California, and to recommend that the city planning commission assign them preservation status according to guidelines specified in the Stockton Municipal Code. The CHB was also entrusted with the tasks of stimulating public awareness of the city’s preservation program, identifying funding sources for preservation implementation, revising the preservation ordinance in the Stockton Municipal Code, preparing a pocket guide of Stockton historical landmarks, and choosing the wording of plaques to be affixed to the city’s historic buildings.
Originally, the board had fifteen members, including one professional architect, one historian, one real estate person, and one resident who had lived in Stockton at least forty years. The number of board members was later reduced to ten. Applicants for membership were screened by the city planning commission and appointed by a majority vote of the city council. Board members served without pay for renewable terms of four years.
John Porter Bloom and James Shebl, both members of the CHB during the early 1980s, collected Series I, which pertains chiefly to the years 1977-1986, and gave it to Holt-Atherton Special Collections (1983-1987). Shebl chaired the board from 1982 through 1985.
The bulk of Series II, which includes coverage for the years 1987-2005, is taken from the Leslie Crow Papers (MSS316), which Holt-Atherton Special Collections acquired in 2007. Crow served as a CHB member from 1989 to 2005 and as its chair from 1990 to 2005. Roger Werner, a board member during the 1990s and early 2000s, collected additional material related to this series and contributed it in 2005.

Scope and Content

The Stockton Cultural Heritage Board Papers span the years 1977-1986, with the bulk of material falling between 1987 and 2005. The collection consists of minutes and agendas, correspondence, petitions, bylaws, site descriptions and awards granted by the board to historical Stockton locations, related photographs, and printed matter from state and national cultural heritage organizations. It also includes agreements, city codes and guidelines, environmental impact reports, historic resource inventories, plans and proposals, subcommittee documents, and material related to conferences, membership policies, and training.
