Argonauts

The Argonaut has been enthusiastically praised by SFHS members for its design and for its well written, illustrated articles covering a wide diversity of topics dealing with San Francisco history. That feeling was echoed by the American Association of Museums, who awarded The Argonaut an honorable mention for design in 2009.

Articles for The Argonaut are written both by amateur historians with expertise on a subject and by professional historians writing on areas that they have extensively researched.
