Collection Scope and Content Summary

This artificial collection comprises photocopied newspaper and magazine clippings from Orange County newspapers and magazines from the early 1900s through the 1990s. Clippings are organized in three groupings: biographical information about notable people; information about city news and significant regional events; and topical items of regional interest, including business, labor, industry, city planning, real estate, construction, crime, recreation, book and newspaper publishing, native flora, fauna, archeological projects, and natural landmarks. Topical clippings also provide wide-ranging information on the diverse communities of Orange County and they include articles on regional history by ten prominent local historians.
The clippings were taken from a variety of local newspapers, including the Santa Ana Register, Los Angeles Times, Tustin News, and the Orange County Register. Others were taken from such publications as Westways and Orange County Magazine. Many clippings lack full citations to their newspaper or magazine sources.
Biographical files are arranged by the surname of the person described within each article. Cities and Towns files are arranged by the name of the city, town, or area. Topical files are arranged alphabetically by subject. Clippings are arranged chronologically whenever possible.
A partial index of individuals who are described in clippings follows the container list. This index was created by Special Collections and Archives staff from 1972 to 1994.
