Book Description:


San Diego has a rich and unique cultural history that can be effectively told through the commemoration of its dead. Local cemeteries throughout the city reflect San Diego’s multiethnic cultural dynamism and pinpoint marked shifts in power from Native American to Spanish to Mexican to American governance. They also reveal the current struggle for space in a burgeoning metropolis. Graveyards, with their individually detailed and hauntingly beautiful monuments, offer an unrivaled historic yet continuous glimpse at the essence of this diverse community. The story of San Diego’s cemeteries is a telling narrative that offers remarkable insight into the evolution of “America’s Finest City.”

Author Bio: In this new volume, authors Seth Mallios and David M. Caterino present the results of the San Diego Gravestone Project, which includes the discovery of many lost San Diego cemeteries that have been unceremoniously erased from the current landscape. Mallios, associate professor and chair of the anthropology department at San Diego State University, and Caterino, coordinator of the South Coastal Information Center, present here a detailed photographic record of the city’s historic graveyards over the past three centuries.
