This week, the University of the Pacific will be hosting its sixtieth California History Institute. Hosted by the University of the Pacific’s John Muir Center, the three days of events will include workshops, paper presentations, and field trips to locations significant to California history. This year’s focus is John Muir; the Saturday, March 22 symposium is titled “What has been lost; what has been saved: John Muir’s Legacy, 1914-2014.” The all-day symposium will focus on the legacy of Muir in the one hundred years since his death.
The John Muir Center is named for pioneering naturalist John Muir, popularizer of Yosemite and early environmentalist. Located at the University of the Pacific’s Stockton campus, the Center holds the John Muir Papers as well as other important documents in California history.
