An address delivered on November 12, 1964, before the Orange County Historical Society at the Charles W. Bowers Memorial Museum, Santa Ana, California. Terry Stephenson (1880 - 1943) was not the first person to write about the history of Orange County, but he was the first County Historian and the first local historian widely recognized for both the depth and the breadth of his research. His books remain some of the best ever written about the history of the county.
