    Biography/Administrative History

    The High Country Magazine was established in 1967 by a group of writers, who included but were not limited to Tom Hudson, Sam Hicks, and Bill Harker. While Ralph Love and later Roy Morrissey and Paul Price created the covers of the magazine. The boarders of this High Country stretched from Temescal Canyon to the San Luis Rey River, with Temecula city in its center. From 1967-1984 this quarterly magazine covered local/regional historical topics and some general United States history. In 1984 the magazine went on hiatus due to a dwindling membership, until 2002 when the Temecula Valley Museum began publishing new issues twice a year. This new version of The High Country began to broaden its view and include global historical topics. Also, most issues of the magazine included poems written by numerous individuals.

    Scope and Content of Collection

Broader articles include United States political discussion, travel, and individuals. Later issues of The High Country expanded its focus to write articles based on global events.
