A look at the following list of items just catalogued for your Museum's archives and files, will give you an idea of the kinds of materials you should be on the lookout for. Brochures from other Museums and Botanical Gardens give us valuable information for future programs. Other items like menus, manuals, and match book covers add up to important insights about San Fernando Valley living and history.
Be a "secret agent" for your Museum. Look for photographs, yearbooks, political materials, and important folks (like yourself) who live or grew up in the Valley.
