Looking for a speaker for your group or institution?

Richard is available to provide interesting and entertaining lectures and presentations to just about any group on a wide variety of topics. Past presentations have included Mission San Diego, native plants, Kumeyaay resistance, unsolved murders in San Diego, San Diego County's Indian reservations, Kumeyaay placenames on our landscape, the 1851 Garra Revolt, the history of wine in San Diego (with tastings if appropriate), women at the Presidio de San Diego, and so on.


And, if you might want a tour of San Diego's first Spanish settlement and mission on Presidio Hill we can do that.

 Or, how about a tour just across the Mexican border and a bit east to Vallecitos de La Rumorosa, northern Baja California's greatest concentration of rock paintings and carvings.

More tour ideas to come.

From the New Book: Monsters on the Loose

Let's look back to 1931 in San Diego. What we see might shock you--it certainly stunned the populace to experience the murder of three young women in less than three months. Those murders went unsolved--maybe until now.
