Biography/Administrative History

The Perris Valley Museum Historical Archives Reference Books, Booklets and Magazines Collection, 1868-2004 is comprised of books, booklets and magazines donated by various individuals since 1983 to the Perris Valley Museum and Historical Association. As most of the provenance of the original donors and the full scope of their collections was lost, the amalgam of the books was grouped as whole.

Scope and Content of Collection

As most of the provenance of a large number of the books was lost, it is difficult to determine the exact significance of the volumes to their individual collections. As such, an artificial but intuitive arrangement was established to make the collection accessible to researchers.
