[inline:1=Historical Society of So. Calif.]The Historical Society of Southern California presents its Tenth Annual History Conference on Saturday, April 9, 2005 from 9:00am-3:30pm at the Autry National Center, in Los Angeles.

This year's conference is entitled "Look, Sip, and Groove: Sensory Paths to L.A. History." Five creative scholars will explore Los Angeles history in a unique way. Sight and smell, taste and sound, represent new avenues through which scholars have traveled in their quests to understand the cultures of southern California. This conference will allow them an opportunity to explore and share the history of our communities in a whole new light.

Designed for teachers, students, academic historians, and the lay public under the theme of "Los Angeles: The Essence of a Community," the history conferences have presented an exciting array of speakers and subjects over the past decade.
