Hispanic Saturday – 27 August 2016 meeting follow up



We had a special guest speaker, Harry Crosby at our 27 August 2016 Hispanic Saturday meeting. The meeting was held in the Neil Morgan auditorium at the San Diego Central library and we had 51 attendees. Harry Crosby is a noted author on early California history. The title of his presentation was California during Spanish Control, 1697-1821. He discussed the early history of Baja California and the people who established Baja California. He also provided the names of some of the early soldiers that came to California. He cited that the establishment of California was different than mainland Mexico because of the Jesuits. The Jesuits had an agreement with the King of Spain that they would establish settlements in California and that they would cover all costs. Part of that agreement gave the Jesuits complete control of the management of California. As a result the Jesuits selected the solders that came to California rather than the Mexican government.


The next Hispanic Saturday meeting will occur on 15 October at 1pm at the San Diego Central Library. It will be the last meeting for this year. Attendees need to go to the 9th floor to find out which room has been assigned for the meeting.
