Trip to Sacramento

Depending on (the war and) how things go, I plan to travel to the California State Library in Sacramento next week. (I live in San Francisco, and Sacramento is about 100 miles away. It's a two hour drive.) This will be my fifth trip to the State Library, which is a major repository of California newspapers on microfilm. To date, I have been able to survey newspapers from most all of the major metropolitan areas in California. (See the various bibliographies for the citations and material that has been collected so far.) On this trip, I hope to dig through the Pasadena Star-News and La Opinion (a Spanish-language newspaper based in Los Angeles) for the period of the mid-to-late 1920's. I will be looking for film reviews and other articles. If there is enough time, I may also look at the papers for Long Beach and Santa Monica.
