Publications and Projects

The Los Angeles City Historical Society periodically sponsors original research and scholarship – for publication by the Society or by others – to expand historical knowledge of the Los Angeles region. Often, this is done with the help from the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation. Long an enthusiastic and generous benefactor of LACHS, the Haynes Foundation is a leading supporter of social science research for Los Angeles and is is the oldest private foundation the city.

Additionally, LACHS publishes a quarterly newsletter packed with information, keeping members up-to-date on events and programs, and providing other information of interest to local history enthusiasts.
