Research files, including correspondence, articles, clippings, and photographs pertaining to Steven Gilbar and Dean Stewart's Tales of Santa Barbara (1994) and Literary Santa Barbara (1998).
Steven Gilbar was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1941. Although he continued to live there until adulthood, a family vacation to Santa Barbara when he was a boy left a lasting impression on him. In 1963, he graduated from the University of Michigan and then went on to earn his J.D. from Detroit's Wayne State University Law School. After practicing law in Detroit for a few years, he moved to California in 1970. His lifelong interest in books led him to the San Francisco law book publishing firm Matthew Bender & Company, where he worked as senior managing editor.
