Description
The collection consists of the historical records reflecting the activities and interests of Los Compadres, a bibliographic society based in Orange County, California.
Background
On the evening of February 8, 1958, Hank Givens, publisher of the Santa Ana Independent, gathered a group together at his Tustin home to discuss books and book collecting. Originally calling themselves the Bibliophile Society of Orange County, the group was later renamed Los Compadres. The original members included Hank Givens, Dwight Hamilton, Pat Patterson, Horace Parker, Ed Rice, Bill Rasmussen, and Don Meadows. Although it was not until 1966 that Los Compadres would formally codify its existence through the creation of a Constitution, they adopted the motto, “United by a love of books, art, history, and literature."
