Home -> About the Webmaster


This web site represents a personal interest of mine in collecting and preserving information about California and the Western U.S.. This is purely a hobby, for my day job I am employed as a CAD/CAE engineer for a Silicon Valley semiconductor company.

Some of the books on this web site are in my personal library, some are entered from photocopies made at numerous libraries.
