Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The materials in this collection document the rich history of the performing arts in San Diego from the late 1940s to 2001, as collected by the Entertainment Department at the San Diego Union. The editor of the Entertainment Department, Welton Jones, maintained these working files during his many years as a columnist for the San Diego Union and as an enthusiastic patron of the performing arts in San Diego. His Entertainment staff added many items to the collection, including photographs from the Photography Department of local venues, performers, and performances.
