INDEX NAME:  Nixon Local History File
  • CARMEL PINE CONE Carmel CA 1915-Current
Carmel CA 93921
Telephone: (408) 624-4629
AVAILABILITY:  Only one copy of this card file index exists. It must be used in the Harrison Memorial Library.
SCOPE OF INDEX:  The Nixon Local History File, named after the woman who donated her extensive collection of clippings, photos and scrapbooks and who began the indexing, is a "people-places-events" index to Carmel local history from 1900 and on. It is a name index which refers to the clipping file (arranged on paste board) and/or to the PINE CONE newspaper on microfilm. The majority of the clippings and articles indexed are from the PINE CONE; however, a few MONTEREY PENINSULA HERALD clippings are indexed when they pertain to Carmel local history. Since 1970, the indexing of the PINE CONE has been more in-depth than any of the previous indexing, and includes subjects and events of local interest.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  A 3x5 card file index in alphabetical order by personal name and subject. Each card consists of a brief subject heading and a briefer explanitory note, followed by one or more citations. Citations which begin "p.c." refer to the PINE CONE newspaper and are followed by the month, day, year and page where the article will be found. Citations which begin "n.f." refer to the clipping file.
SIZE OF INDEX:  About 10 entries per week are added to the current index. There are about 2000 cards in the index file.
