Finis Haskins was the Director of the Goleta Valley Historical Society for many years, but he had an interest in collecting newspaper articles about Montecito residents. He handcopied these articles into notebooks along with an index of names dating from 1920s to 1970s. They include obituaries, weddings, and deed transfers. However, some names in the index are for photos only, and Mr. Haskins did not indicate the date of the newspaper it appeared in. Photos are not available other than in the undated newspaper.
