Report by curator Edwin Gledhill to the Santa Barbara Historical Society board at their first meeting held at the Society's new quarters at the Santa Barbara Mission. Gledhill recounts the efforts required to accomplish the opening of the Society's new exhibits at the Old Mission. There are two recorded takes of this report.


Tracks A and B each contain a different take of the same report by Edwin Gledhill to the Board. It is likely these recordings are either practice ahead of the meeting or a post-meeting documentation of a milestone report.
