Carranco (Lynwood) Papers

Lynwood ("Links") Carranco (April 2, 1921 - July 1, 1987) was born in Samoa, California, a company town owned by Hammond Lumber, and worked in the mills as a young man. He became a teacher, historian and meticulous researcher, writing on the history of his native Humboldt County and northwestern California, especially logging history. His papers reflect the subject matter of his historical writings. For an introductory guide to the content of Carranco's papers, see the two bibliographies of his published works.
