September 25 - 26, 2009

The CSA Western Region announces a two-day regional symposium to be
held in Old Town Sacramento, California.

The keynote lecture by Inez Brooks-Myers, Oakland Museum of
California, will be titled "What is California Costume?" In addition
to our day-long program of juried papers and research-in-progress
reports, members and guests at the California State Railroad Museum
in Old Sacramento will see a world-class tribute to the role of the
"iron horse" in connecting California to the rest of the nation. The
museum features 21 lavishly restored locomotives and cars, some
dating back to 1862. There is a full-scale diorama of an 1860's
construction site high in the Sierra Nevada as well as a bridge
elevated 24 feet above the museum floor. Scenic train rides are
available just a few steps away from the museum.

The Friday night reception and Saturday lunch offer opportunities
for socializing with colleagues. You can also wander the raised
boardwalk sidewalks in Old Town Sacramento for shopping and evening
dining. The Western Region's annual meeting will be included.

The conference hotel is the Delta King Hotel, an authentic 285-foot
paddle wheel boat. The Delta King Hotel is also the site for the
Friday reception. Visit the web site for more information:
