Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo and his Recuerdos

May 11, 2023 @ 5:30 am PDT

Join Rose Marie Beebe and Robert M. Senkewicz as they discuss their recent translation and publication of Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo’s massive five-volume history of California before the American conquest, Recuerdos. It is the most complete account of our Golden State during the Spanish and Mexican periods by one who lived through it and became a major political and military figure in it.

Vallejo, born and raised in Spanish California, rose to high military command during the Mexican era. He then participated in some of the founding events of U.S. California as a member of the Constitutional Convention and of the first State Senate. His Recuerdos emphasized the importance of Spanish and Mexican influence and culture to the development of California. The publication of this work, after decades of obscurity, is a major contribution to the study of early California.

Rose Marie Beebe is Professor Emerita of Spanish literature and Robert M. Senkewicz is Professor Emeritus of History, both at Santa Clara University. Their collaborative works include Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo: Life in Spanish, Mexican, and American California and Junipero Serra: California, Indians, and the Transformation of a Missionary which won the Oscar Lewis Award for Western History by the Book Club of California. Both authors are recipients of numerous teaching and scholarship
