This page contains names of those remarkable individuals who have published, presented speaker programs or recorded topics on Santa Clara Valley regional history.

This list is by no means complete and is under construction.

For his work in correcting early and in some cases continuing misinformation about our earliest and current native peoples, Mark Hylkema has the honor of being the first person listed on this page.
