Description
This collection contains nearly 300 binders of copied notes, reports, correspondence, articles, and other research material compiled by Richard Amero on many San Diego historical subjects, with an emphasis on the history of Balboa Park.
Background
Richard Amero was born July 16, 1924. He spent his childhood in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where his father was a carpenter. Eager for him to break with the traditional family trade, his father kept Richard away from the carpenter tools. After being released from the army, Amero decided to enroll in Black Mountain College in 1946, where his main focus was literature. After a year at Black Mountain, he enrolled at Bard College.
