Table of contents What's This?
This collection is made up of subject files and photographs compiled by Dan Flynn while researching for his Sacramento guidebook Inside Guide to Sacramento: The Hidden Gold of California’s Capital. Material includes ephemera, magazines, brochures, newspaper clippings, restaurant menus, pamphlets, and photographs of local area businesses and points of historic interest. The book itself provides an overview of Sacramento’s neighborhoods, restaurants, bars, cafes, nightlife, cultural institutions, events, and accommodations. It also touches on the towns surrounding Sacramento.
Dan Flynn, author of Inside Guide to Sacramento: The Hidden Gold of California’s Capital, was born in 1961 in Oxnard, California. He earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from University of California, Santa Barbara, and a master’s degree in political science from Rutgers University. Flynn moved to Sacramento in 1986 and worked for the California state legislature until 2005, when he began working as the director of the Olive Center at University of California, Davis.
