Papers in the collection originated from Magliari's involvement with the Mono Lake Committee (Magliari has been a member since
1977). Most of the collection involves Magliari's work on the state capitol office staff of California State Senator John
Garamendi (Thirteenth District). In April 1980, Magliari took a leave of absence from his graduate studies in History at the
University of California, Davis, and joined Garamendi's staff as his Field Representative and press secretary. His chief duties
included the drafting and management of Garamendi's Mono Lake legislation. In January 1981, Magliari resumed his graduate
education, but remained on Garamendi's staff as a student intern and volunteer consultant on Mono Lake until December 1981.
Michael Magliari is an Associate Professor of History at California State University, Chico. Formerly, he served as press
secretary to California State Senator John Garamendi. He is the author of Senate Concurrent Resolution 79 and Senate Bill
