Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Royal Presidio of San Diego Archaeological Collection Records (1963-1994) document the Center for Regional History's involvement with archaeological excavations at San Diego's Presidio, led by San Diego State University's Anthropology Department and the San Diego Historical Society, during the 1960s-1970s. The majority of the records date from the 1970s-1980s, and focus on the Center's curation of the Real Presidio de San Diego Archaeological Collection from 1979-1989, and the Center's 1981 conference "Approaches to Historical Archaeology: The Case of the Royal Presidio of San Diego". The collection consists of academic papers, reports, memos, correspondence, publications, photographs, and audio recordings. The collection is arranged in two series: Administrative Files and Audio Recordings.
The San Diego History Research Center, later renamed the Center for Regional History (CRH), was a public history archives and museum housed in San Diego State University's Library. After a transitional period, the CRH's holdings were transferred to the library's Special Collections & University Archives department in 1988, where they still reside today.
