About ISLAPEDIA:
15,937 digitized pages of records and information richly illustrated with 9,050 images
as of January 7, 2021

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 also included. 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 Rare 19th century and early 20th century California islands references and unique unpublished manuscripts and diaries are found here.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.
