Our first contest, and the usual news roundup

Pop quiz: Can anyone (who I haven't already shown this to) identify the lil' buckeroo in the photo at right? This shot was taken many years ago in the Pitchur Gallery at Knott's Berry Farm. No, it's not me. Yes, it's someone you know. (Click on the photo to enlarge it.) I'll post the name of the "cowboy," and the name(s) of anyone who answers correctly in a future post. Winners can stop by the Archives to collect their prize. I'll get you some animal crackers out of the breakroom vending machine or something.

Early Placentia, the new Arcadia book from Professor Larry de Graaf, should hitting the shelves of your local bookstore right about now. The early buzz is good.

"The Sting" will be shown on the side of the historic Fox Theatre in Fullerton, Thursday night at 7pm. For details, click here.

Leland Pound will give a presentation on “Internet Research for Genealogists” at the April 21 meeting of the South O.C. Genealogical Society. The group meets at the corner of Hillcrest and Marguerite Pkwy (behind the LDS Church), in Mission Viejo.

Werner Weiss has posted a Disneyland brochure from 1966 at his Yesterland site. Dig it.

Oh, and I forgot to post a link to this article about the guy who sculpted busts of Andrew and William T. Glassell, Alfred Beck Chapman and Andrew Carnegie for the soon-to-open Orange Public Library.
