I’ve been an Oceanside local since 1983 and Oceanside history is my favorite subject.
As the Director of the Oceanside Historical Society, in Oceanside, California and Oceanside's historian after 35+ years of research, I know lots of interesting and (sometimes useless) information on people, places and things. My blog gives me the opportunity to share some of the back story on events, forgotten people, and sometimes a bit darker but interesting view of my hometown.
When I read on a particular person, subject or incident, I want all the details...so I endeavor to write that way. True stories have always intrigued me, they’re far more fascinating than fiction.
Do you have a local story you would like me to research? I would love to hear from you.
