ISLAPEDIA is a comprehensive California Islands encyclopedia covering hundreds of topics and thousands of entries on all eight California Channel Islands: San Miguel, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz, Anacapa, San Nicolas, Santa Barbara, Santa Catalina and San Clemente Islands. All additional Islands of the Californias are included as well. ISLAPEDIA includes more than 2000 people whose lives or deaths intersected with the islands, plus place names, ships and shipwrecks, island events and noteworthy topics. Rare 19th century and early 20th century California islands references and unique unpublished manuscripts and diaries are found here. ISLAPEDIA was begun in 1973 by cultural anthropologist, Marla Daily, president of the Santa Cruz Island Foundation(1987-current). The Santa Cruz Island Foundation is the sole institution devoted to the cultural history, art, film and science of all California Islands. ISLAPEDIA is a continuing research work in progress—now in its 5th decade.

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: 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: 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 385 shipwrecks are listed by island, and cross-referenced alphabetically throughout ISLAPEDIA.
