Researchers Anonymous presents author Melanie Mayer on finding the original location of the Santa Cruz Mission.

Local historians know that the original location of the Santa Cruz Mission is not the place we can visit today. So how does one go about researching where the first mission was? Please join us for this insightful discussion with Professor Mayer about the process of writing her new book, The Mission Santa Cruz Mystery: Seven Clues to Find the Site of the First Mission. The book will be available for purchase for $26.

Melanie, professor emerita of psychology at UCSC, has also written Klondike Women: True Tales of the 1897–1898 Gold Rush and Staking Her Claim: The Life Of Belinda Mulrooney. She last spoke at Researchers on the history of Santa Cruz’s water systems.
