San Jose State University
Ventured about an hour south to San Jose, where I visited the combined libraries of the city of San Jose and San Jose State University. (I've been to the San Jose Public library in the past, before it merged with the university library.) Today, I completed my survey of the two San Jose newspapers of the 1920's and 1930's, the San Jose Mercury Herald and San Jose Evening News. Found lots of reviews, articles and advertisements - including what is likely to be the first mention of Louise Brooks in a Bay Area newspaper.
Also, took notes on microfilm and bound periodicals collections in order to plan out future trips. And, browsed the book shelves of the film section. There is much to be looked at !
