Montecito Historical Archives
updated: May 31, 2014, 10:00 AM

Montecito Historical Archives, Inc., a 501(c)(3) Charitable non profit corporation, recently held a sold out event at the Montecito Country Club where over 300 history hungry guests were treated to a fascinating lecture on Huguette Clark, Bellosguardo, and the Clark Estates by Pulitzer Prize winning author Bill Dedman, Paul Clark Newell, Jr. (Huguette's distant relative), and Barbara Hoelscher Doran, who grew up at Bellosguardo and spent many happy hours with Huguette. Ms. Doran shared her memories of the massive house on the hill, and of Huguette Clark's generous nature.

The guests at the lecture sat in rapt attention to all three speakers, knowing that the fabulous Clark Estate which overlooks East Beach, the Andre' Clark Bird Refuge, the Santa Barbara Cemetery, and the Channel Islands, had recently been deeded to the City of Santa Barbara in Ms. Clark's will. Among the most prized of the many fabulous estates in Montecito, Bellosguardo may one day become an Art Museum that will challenge any other in the world, which was Ms.Clark's desire.

The purpose of the Montecito Historical Archives is to preserve the historic community of the greater Montecito area by acting as a repository for local historic collections, and to educate the public about the importance of preserving historical records. The Montecito Historical Archives primarily consists of the massive historical research collection of the late David F. Myrick, which he left to MHA in his will. When a suitable location is found to display Mr. Myrick's life long passion for preserving and sharing local history, the collection will be made available to the public. Perhaps even at Bellosguardo!
