PEOPLE: ISLAPEDIA includes short biographies of over 2000 people whose lives intersected the California Channel Islands between 1850 and 1950 – those who would own them, those who would work them, those who would visit them with purpose, and those who would die there.

PLACES

<center>Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo Monument, SMI</center>
PLACES: A broad ISLAPEDIA category which includes not only island geographic locations and place names, but also yacht clubs, social organi-
zations, and schools. Entries range from Abalone Point to the Yamada Commercial Company.

VESSELS

<center>Cueva Valdez, Siwash</center>
VESSELS: Over 600 vessels are included, from the 19th century otter-hunting schooner, Achilles, to Zingara, a 52-foot gasoline-powered schooner that burned off Anacapa Island in November 1931. More than 140 shipwrecks are listed by island, and cross-referenced alphabetically throughout ISLAPEDIA.
