Description
The Edward W. Vernon papers contain materials accumulated by Ed Vernon during his research for two history books he authored on Baja California missions and maritime history. The materials include correspondence, research notes, field notes, photographic materials, maps, site plans, journals, secondary materials, and digital assets. Ed Vernon was a successful entrepreneur, engineer, and Southern California native. He served during World War II and later founded Development Associates in Goleta, California, where he and his colleagues developed the first dollar bill changer. Following his retirement in 1996, Vernon traveled extensively in Baja California where he conducted field research on the missions and maritime history of the penisula. From that research he authored two books; Las Misiones Antiguas, The Spanish Missions of Baja California, and A Maritime History of Baja California.
