“First Pickets in Davis History” the Enterprise Declares in September 25, 1958 Headline (168)

Today is the third anniversary of Davis History Today. Numerically, this means 168 posts have been published over 156 weeks. Amazing to me, Google’s counting device reports almost 30,000 visits to this site over that period and, in the last year, almost a thousand “hits” a month. Davis history is an exotic and specialized topic. I am therefore heartened to think that a reasonable number of people seem to be interested in it. Moreover, this website has brought me into contact with dozens of Davis history inquirers that I would otherwise have never met and it has expanded my relations with many I already knew. I am very much in their debt for enriching my life by inviting me to participate in their research journeys.
