Through the more than 150 years of its existence, the Sacramento Pioneer Association has attempted to honor the original purpose of the founders:
To cultivate the social virtues of its members, to collect and preserve information connected with the early settlement and conquest of the country, and to perpetuate the memory of those whose sagacity, enterprise, and love of independence induced them to settle in the wilderness and to become the germ of a new State.
One way we do that is to publish, from time to time, monographs, articles, and books about California pioneers. Listed below are a few of these:
- Frame, Walter C. and Mark Hopkins
Occasional Monographs of the Sacramento Pioneer Foundation
Sacramento Pioneer Association, 1969.
