Twenty years ago today, Malibu officially became a city. The Pepperdine University Special Collections and University Archives hold the archives of the Malibu Times and the Malibu Surfside News, both of which covered the journey to Malibu’s cityhood and are an excellent resource for researching Malibu’s history.
These newspapers are a major part of Pepperdine’s Malibu Historical Collection, a growing collection of historic materials that document the history of the City of Malibu and its residents. Learn more about the collections here.
If you are interested in seeing any of these materials, please contact Melissa Nykanen at (310) 506-4434 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
