Crawford, who has written on local history for the San Diego Union-Tribune and the Journal of San Diego History, in several books and now his own blog, "will recall significant events and one-of-a-kind characters that laid the foundation for the San Diego we know today." The lecture is free; wine is $5 per glass.
