Community Historian Program: Free Tuesday Lectures
On the second Tuesday of each month, watch a Community Historian presentation at 1 pm in our Thornton Theater. Each lecture is free with “Give Forward” admission. Community Historians are trained volunteers and staff who bring their passion for San Diego history to your community meetings and organizations through informative talks. Our speakers can introduce visitors and tourists to San Diego history or else dive deep into the details of a unique San Diego topic. Program presentations are illustrated with historic photos and documents from our Research Archives. Topic: Dam the Water and Pray for Rain The story of San Diego is inextricably bound up with the story of water; people cannot long survive in a region without access to this most vital resource. This presentation starts by looking at water access prior to American arrival. With an increasing population, water agencies, plans, and infrastructure blossomed after California joined the United States. This brings the presentation to the modern era and leaves the audience with questions to ponder.
