The South County Historical Society is proud to provide its website viewers with all seven editions of the Dune Forum, which were edited and partially written in 1933-34 at Gavin Arthurs Moy Mell, located on the nearby Oceano dunes. With contributors and subscribers around the country, Mr. Arthur decided to have a conversation in print about the pressing issues facing Americans during the Great Depression. Topics of the articles range from art to politics to science and beyond. For the most part, the Dune Forum has been replicated with the original (sometimes imperfect) spelling and grammar used by its writers and editors. In converting the Dune Forum magazines to computer format, we tried as best as possible to preserve the original formatting. We did not always succeed.
The South County Historical Society
recognizes Colin Carlberg, Evelyn Carlberg, Norm Hammond and Linda Guiton for providing
original copies of the Dune Forum in order to
make this project possible. Special thanks to volunteers Dick Jackson and Susan Rock, who
contributed their computer and editing skills in this unique effort.
