Uncovering Hayward Area and Bay Area History

Submitted By Marcess Owings

Have you ever been curious about the history around you, in your town or your very own neighborhood? How would you uncover the past without an existing book or website? To find out more, join us for an evening with students from CSU East Bay on Thursday, May 16 at 5:30 p.m.

Graduate students from the History Program are thrown into the deep end of the local research pool every year, and amazing stories float to the surface. Come hear about their works-in-progress, their methods of recovering details they never thought they could find, and dive with them in search of your own historical curiosity!

Presenting will be Michael Burton, "Port Costa: Sustaining an Unlikely Coastal California Boomtown, 1879-1909"; Edwin Contreras, "Mexican Land Grants: The Case of Don Castro's Rancho San Lorenzo"; Olga Kachina, "How Global History Became Local: The Memory of the 1918 Izhevsk-Votkinsk Anti-Bolshevik Uprising as it is Preserved in California"; Andrew Levin, "BART: The backbone for who?"; Bria Reiniger, "Salt of the Hayward Shoreline: The Oliver Salt Company"; and Carlotta Falzone Robinson, "Designing a Unified City: The Aesthetic Ideals of the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition."

This free program is a collaboration between the Hayward Area Historical Society, the History Department at CSU East Bay, and the Pancho Villa Event Center. The Hayward Area Historical Society preserves and interprets the diverse history of the Hayward, Castro Valley, and San Lorenzo region through educational programs, history exhibitions, and the preservation of historic sites and artifacts. This program is part of a series called "History Around Town" which features lectures, workshops, concerts, special tours, and living history events at different HAHS sites and locations throughout the community.
