California’s Fruit Cocktail Online Exhibit

I am developing an online historical exhibit titled “California’s Fruit Cocktail.”  It has been a labor of love stemming from my own research project on the history of the California fruit canning industry in Northern California.   I am very grateful to the donation of artistic and programming time from JSI Development, it is still a lot of slow work to make a professional exhibit come to fruition.  But, it is worth it.

I began this project because it was my dissertation topic.  As I collected data, I was excited about all the wonderful tidbits I found and wanted to share them.  As I progressed in my project, I kept connecting my historical research with current issues.
