PUBLICATIONS

Overview

Since our first book publication in 1874—Padre Fr. Francisco Palóu's four-volume Noticias de la Nueva California, edited by John T. Doyle—CHS publications have provided an ongoing dialogue between the past and the present. Our print and digital publications reach beyond purely historical narrative to connect Californians to their state, region, nation, and the world in innovative and thought-provoking ways.

During our publishing history of 140-plus years, we have produced a variety of publications in collaboration with major California publishers.

Under the California Historical Society Press banner, CHS enjoyed a decades-long association with Heyday.

Our continued partnership with Heyday, and additional collaborations with the University of California Press in Berkeley and Angel City Press in Los Angeles have since expanded our publishing program statewide.

The establishment of the California Historical Society Book Award with Heyday, along with journals, book series, and exhibition publications, have made CHS’s publication program an integral part of the organization’s outreach.
