Happenings at the California Historical Society and Beyond

Dear H-Californians,

The California Historical Society's home page contains a scrolling list of noteworthy events focused on the history of the Golden State.  Some of the events listed are sponsored by historical organizations other than CHS and so take place around the state.  Check it out!  See if there's an event near you or get up-to-date news on current and upcoming events at CHS central in San Francisco.  

Article: "Art Conservation Between Theory and Practice"

Dear H-California folks,

I'm not a regular subscriber to your list (my main field is medieval European art history), but I wanted to alert you to a newly published, peer-reviewed article I wrote which may be of interest to your membership: Seth Adam Hindin, "Art Conservation Between Theory and Practice: The Laboratory for Research in the Fine Arts and Museology at the University of California, Davis, 1960-78," Journal of the American Institute for Conservation 54.1 (February 2015): 29-44.
