The Library's collection includes a handbook for Santa Cruz High School, printed in 1912 and numerous issues of the High School's monthly newspaper, the "Trident " from 1908 to 1913. These resources give us some sense of the student's activities and administration at the High School. [RAP, DRJ-eds.]

    It is our continuing goal to make available a selection of articles on various subjects and places in Santa Cruz County. Certain topics, however, have yet to be researched. In other cases, we were not granted permission to use articles. The content of the articles is the responsibility of the individual author. It is the Library's intent to provide accurate local history information.
