The fourth in a series of John Muir conferences sponsored by the John Muir Center for Regional Studies, University of the Pacific

Held in Martinez and Stockton, California.

The 1996 California History Institute was entitled "John Muir in Historical Perspective" and was held April 18-21, 1996. The first two days of the conference was spent in Martinez, California, at the John Muir National Historic Site sessions. The first academic sessions were followed by tours of the Strentzel-Muir home and of the Muir Cemetery. The following two days, April 20-21, academic sessions were held on the campus of the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California.

A session devoted to graduate student presentation was presented, and a special exhibit of Muir books and artifacts was conducted by the Holt-Atherton Library, holder of the John Muir Papers. On Friday at the John Muir Historic Site, luncheon participants had the chance to visit with John Muir in person (or should we say impersonation).
