about

San Diego today is a vibrant and bustling coastal city, but it wasn’t always so. The city’s transformation from a rough-hewn border town and frontier port to a vital military center was marked by growing pains and political clashes. Civic highs and criminal lows have defined San Diego’s rise through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries into a preeminent Sun Belt city. Historian Richard W. Crawford recalls the significant events and one-of-a-kind characters like benefactor Frank “Booze” Beyer, baseball hero Albert Spalding and novelist Scott O’Dell. Join Crawford for a collection that recounts how San Diego yesterday laid the foundation for the city’s bright future.
