John Rojas `Mr. Chula Vista Local Historian'

Recognized for Preservation of Local History

By Daniel H. Muñoz, Jr.

Let us say you want to find out a bit of history about your hometown, where do you go for the info? You go to the library!

But where does the librarian go when they want to gather information that someday you will need?

In the city of Chula Vista when the Civic Center Library needs any information, background, a picture, a story about their town, the first and usually the last person they talk to is John Rojas, also known as "Mr. Chula Vista Local Historian".

"John is not only `Mr. Chula Vista Local Historian' here at the library, but he has a great wealth of material resources in his home," stated Nora McMartin, Community Outreach Manager for Chula Vista Public Libraries. "He has the photographs, he has all kinds of information, and he is the source for most of the archival materials at the library."
