Textile Production in Historic California

Living Room Lecture

Spanish and Mexican textile traditions spread throughout what is now California when presidios, missions, ranchos, and pueblos were established in the late 1700s. Blankets made of local Churro wool were important trade items and were made in the thousands every year. Unfortunately, few fragments of historic textiles from this period exist. As an archaeologist and fiber craftsperson, Susan Hector decided to research historic period textiles in California and then create fabrics for use in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park as interpretive and museum objects.

Wine Lecture: Save the Last Bullet

Jun 20, 2024

Join the Coronado Historical Association for our final Wine & Lecture this Spring, Save the Last Bullet. Heidi Langbein-Allen’s father, Willi Langbein, was thirteen when the Nazis took him away from his parents under the pretense of protecting him. The real reason was to mold him into cannon-fodder for use against the Russian army. Willi was sent to the Eastern Front at age fourteen in the last days of the war to stave off the advance of the Russians. Neither he nor his classmates We expected to return alive from the final battles of the Third Reich.   

Having survived the war against all odds, Willi returned home to find everything he knew destroyed. Numb and confused, he was mandated to serve one year of forced farm labor, putting his life on hold.
