Sonoma County Preservation Project
Photographs, slides, and student papers from the Sonoma State University History department in the 1970s record the history of regional structures and thus the history of the communities around them. Although it focuses on buildings of Sonoma County, the collection also includes some examples from Marin and Mendocino counties and miscellaneous structures of the wider San Francisco Bay Area. In addition to providing an inventory of local architecture, the student papers also cover many North Bay social issues, such as Chinese exclusion, and include some biographical sketches of significant local personalities.
