If you don't want to hassle with driving to the downtown San Diego Public Library but need to do research in the San Diego City and County directories, consider using the volumes at our library.
We hold the following volumes: 1908-9, 1911-12, 1916, 1924-25, 1931-32, 1934-36, 1939, 1942, 1952-58, 1960-65, 1968, 1971-74, 1976-79. We also have a 1929 San Diego City Telephone Directory that helps fill that blank.
If you are a society member you have 24 hour access to the library. If you are a non-member consider joining the society, or use our library when it is open to the public. In January 2010 we will have the library open to the general public on Thursdays. That gives us a couple of months to get things fully organized.
