-Los Angeles Public Library Women’s Heritage Month- “Hiding Under Eastern Petticoats? The Emerging Women’s Suffrage Movement in California” Free Event
For women demanding the vote after the Civil War, California was a hot-bed of activity, especially with the rival National and American Woman Suffrage Associations battling for alliances in the Golden State.
Join Donna Schuele (UCLA, Cal State LA) as she explores California’s suffrage movement in the 1870s and the ways in which the California movement was driven—and riven—by circumstances both local and national.
This event is sponsored by the History & Genealogy Department of the Los Angeles Public Library and the Historical Society of Southern California.

HSSC Tour of Historical Society of Long Beach Exhibit “Long Beach Remembers Pearl Harbor” (Saturday, March 18, 2017)
Tour of Historical Society of Long Beach Exhibit, “Long Beach Remembers Pearl Harbor.”
Join the HSSC on March 18, 2017, from 2:00pm-4:00pm for a visit to the Historical Society of Long Beach to view their exhibit “Long Beach Remembers Pearl Harbor.” HSLB Executive Director Julie Bartolotto will give a tour of the exhibit and then historians Craig Hendricks and Timothy Friden will talk about the history related to the exhibit.
About the exhibit: “On December 7, 1941, the bombing of Pearl Harbor shocked the nation and propelled the United States into World War II. Long Beach was a strategic stronghold as a major staging area for the Pacific conflict. The war touched everyone who lived here. Many of the ships in Hawaii on that fateful day spent months in Long Beach before the bombing. Officers and enlisted men on the ships left families and friends in Long Beach. The event not only transformed the war in the Pacific, it transformed the lives of Long Beach residents and the city’s economy and infrastructure. The bombing of Pearl Harbor was the catalyst for airport, harbor, and industrial development, and laid the groundwork for the Long Beach that we know today. Using photos, newspapers, items from its collection and others collected from the community, the exhibition commemorates this important anniversary of the event that forced the United States into the Second World War.”
The HSLB is located at 4260 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, California 90807.
