This onsite exhibition draws keenly upon the scholarship of Donald M. Fisher, Kevin Cook, Pat Farabaugh, and the authors and photographers whose work has appeared in the Democrat and Chronicle.  An extended list of print/web references is below. In addition, community members and fans of the Royals have contributed personal accounts, some of which appear in the exhibit. Thank you, all!
