Table of contents What's This?
The La Laguna Revue was a pictorial magazine that was created in the 1960s by Roger Mayhall. Mayhall also acted as the magazine’s publisher. The magazines name derived from the Native Americans and Spanish peoples, who called the area of Elsinore La Laguna. So, the staff settled on La Laguna Revue. The magazine covered political, economic, social, and environmental events of Elsinore and the surrounding areas. The surrounding area covered over ten different cities and towns. Unfortunately, in the late 1960s the magazine stopped being printed.
The La Laguna Revue Magazine was created in 1961 by Roger Mayhall, who was also the magazine’s publisher. Mayhall visualized a permanent record for the history of Elsinore and the surrounding area, by creating a monthly magazine that showed its development. Moreover, Mayhall wanted to create a pictorial magazine that would not only tell the reader, but show them with pictures. The La Laguna Revue name derived from the local Native American tribe Pa-hav-ha, who called the Lake Elsinore area Laguna Grande. And from Julian Manriquez, who received a 13,000 acre Spanish land grant in Elsinore entitled Rancho La Laguna. Thus, the staff members settled on La Laguna Revue. Unfortunately, during the late 1960s the La Laguna Revue stopped being printed.
