The written as opposed to oral history of the San Diego, California, region began in the present state of California when Europeans first began inhabiting the San Diego Bay region. As the first area of California in which Europeans settled, San Diego has been described as "the birthplace of California. Explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo claims to have discovered San Diego Bay in , roughly years before Europeans settled the area; in truth, Native Americans such as the Kumeyaay people had been living in the area for as long as 12, years prior to any European presence.

A fort and mission were established in , which gradually expanded into a settlement under first Spanish and then Mexican rule. San Diego officially became part of the U. It remained a very small town for several decades, but grew rapidly after due to development and the establishment of multiple military facilities. Growth was especially rapid during and immediately after World War II. Entrepreneurs and boosters laid the basis for an economy based today on the military, defense industries, tourism, international trade, and manufacturing.

San Diego is now the eighth largest city in the country and forms the heart of the larger San Diego metropolitan area. The area has long been inhabited by the Kumeyaay Native American people. His landing is re-enacted every year at the Cabrillo Festival sponsored by Cabrillo National Monument , but it did not lead to settlement.

After holding the first Catholic service conducted on California soil on the feast day of San Diego de Alcala, also the patron saint of his flagship , he renamed the bay. He left after 10 days and was enthusiastic about its safe harbor, friendly natives, and promising potential as a successful colony. Despite his enthusiasm, the Spanish were unconvinced; it would be another years before colonization began. In the following year the Kumeyaay indigenous people rebelled against the Spanish.

They killed the priest and two others, and burned the mission. By the mission had become the largest in California, with a population of more than 1, presumably converted Native American " Mission Indians " relocated to and associated with it. The tile-roofed adobe structure was destroyed by an earthquake but replaced by a third church in The San Diego Mission was secularized and shut down in and the land was sold off. Beyond town Mexican land grants expanded the number of California ranchos that modestly added to the local economy.

The location was not ideal, being several miles away from navigable water. Imported goods and exports primarily tallow and hides had to be carried over the La Playa Trail to the anchorages in Point Loma. In the population was about There were only two guns, one of which was spiked, and the other had no carriage. Twelve half-clothed and half-starved-looking fellows composed the garrison, and they, it was said, had not a musket apiece.

During the Mexican—American War the control of the city was exchanged three times: Following events near San Gabriel in early January , peace returned to California. Alta California became part of the United States in following the U. The resident " Californios " became American citizens with full voting rights.

California was admitted to the Union as a state in San Diego, still little more than a village, was incorporated on March 27 as a city and was named the county seat of the newly established San Diego County. San Diego promptly got into financial trouble due to overspending on a poorly designed jail.

In the state repealed the city charter, in effect declaring the city bankrupt, and installed a state-controlled three-member board of trustees to manage San Diego. The trustees stayed in control until , when a mayor-council form of government was installed under a new city charter. Although some 10, men stopped briefly in San Diego on their way to the San Francisco gold fields, few stayed, and San Diego remained sparsely settled during much of the s.

Despite its small population, this decade brought investors who saw the potential of San Diego. They bought lots, and built rough houses and shops.

Remembered as "Davis' Folly", it was completed by August , but was seldom used. In , the steamer Los Angeles collided with the wharf. The damage was never repaired. Unused and poorly built, the damage was not worth fixing.

Davis tried unsuccessfully to sell it. Finally, in , the Army destroyed it, using timbers for firewood. The failure of the wharf was only one indication of depressed times. Houses were dismantled and shipped to more promising settlements. By , many of the enterprises that had been established during the early s had closed. The few businesses that survived suffered from water shortages, high costs of shipping, and a declining population.

He laid out the grid system the streets, speculated in land in the business district, and constructed hotels and stores. When he ran out of money, leadership in boosterism passed to Alonzo Horton.

He began promoting San Diego by enticing entrepreneurs and residents. The area was referred to as New Town or the Horton Addition. Despite opposition from the residents of the original settlement, which became known as "Old Town", businesses and residents flocked to New Town, and San Diego experienced the first of its many real estate booms. In , government records were moved to a new county courthouse in New Town, and by the s New Town or downtown had totally eclipsed Old Town as the heart of the growing city.

To prevent that, the manager of Central Pacific Railroad Charles Crocker , decided not to build an extension to San Diego, fearing that it would take too much trade from San Francisco. In , a transcontinental railroad route came to San Diego, and the population boomed, reaching 16, by Spreckels was built to provide San Diego with a direct transcontinental rail link to the east by connecting with the Southern Pacific Railroad lines in El Centro, California.

In the Spreckels heirs sold it to the Southern Pacific Railroad. In Council restrictions on soapbox oratories led to the San Diego free speech fight , a confrontation between the Industrial Workers of the World on the one side and law enforcement and vigilantes on the other. The city grew in bursts, especially in the s and again from to , when it reached , In the — period the nation became greatly interested in Pacific naval affairs, as seen in the Spanish—American War of ; the U.

San Diego was in a strategic location and sought to become "the Gibraltar of the Pacific. Collier and other leaders of the Chamber of Commerce, assisted by Congressman William Kettner actively lobbied the Navy and the federal government to make San Diego a major location for naval, marine, and air bases. With the reduction in naval spending after , the Chamber turned its focus to tourism and conventions. San Diego had the great harbor and the weather; it seemed poised to become a world-class metropolis.

But it was overshadowed by both San Francisco and Los Angeles. Spreckels expressed the enthusiasm of San Diego's boosters in , as well as the disappointment that it had not fully developed The southern portion of the Point Loma peninsula was set aside for military purposes as early as Over the next several decades the Army set up a series of coastal artillery batteries and named the area Fort Rosecrans.

Navy presence began in , with the establishment of the Navy Coaling Station in Point Loma, and expanded greatly during the s. The Marine base Camp Matthews , which was joined by Camp Callan from to , occupied a mesa near La Jolla from until ; the site is now the campus of University of California, San Diego. It remains one of the main Marine Corps training facilities.

In the early s, twenty percent of the San Diego region's economy was dependent on defense spending. San Diego gave strong support to the Progressive Movement that swept California in the early 20th century in order to purify the state from oppressive bossism and corporate rule. Reformers organized and fought back beginning with the municipal election. In , they formed the Roosevelt Republican Club, and in reformers backed a Nonpartisan League.

The mayoralty election of marked a sweeping victory for the League, as did the election of Hiram Johnson as governor. Marston was defeated for mayor in against Charles F.

O'Neall and again in against Louis J. The race in particular was a classic growth-vs. Marston argued for better city planning with more open space and grand boulevards; Wilde argued for more business development.

He was inspired by his studies of the architecture of Mexico.

From the s through the s, the American tuna fishing fleet and tuna canning industry were based in San Diego, acclaimed by boosters as the "tuna capital of the world. Portuguese began arriving to San Diego in the s, and began immigrating in large numbers in the early 20th century, becoming the largest population of foreign-born fishermen in San Diego. By , there were about boats in Southern California engaged in the tuna industry, and ten canneries in San Diego. By the fleet's tuna catch exceeded million pounds.

During World War II when fishing was not possible, 53 tuna boats and about crew members served the U. Navy as the " yippie fleet " so called because of service numbers beginning with YP, for Yard Patrol , also called the "pork chop express", delivering food, fuel and supplies to military installations all over the Pacific.

In the s tuna fishing and canning was the third largest industry in San Diego, after the Navy and aviation. Arnholt Smith , a top civic leader, was a major investor. With Japan offering cheaper tuna after , Smith worked to break the union using new technology and Peruvian canneries. The industry suffered due to rising costs and foreign competition. The legacy of the tuna fleet is still felt in Little Italy , where most of the Italian fishermen settled, and in the Point Loma neighborhood of Roseville , still sometimes referred to as "Tunaville," where many Portuguese fishermen and boat owners settled.

There is a sculpture dedicated to the cannery workers in Barrio Logan [56] and a "Tunaman's Memorial" statue representing the fishermen on Shelter Island. Philanthropy was an important part of San Diego's expansion. For example, wealthy heiress Ellen Browning Scripps underwrote many public facilities in La Jolla , was a key supporter of the fledgling San Diego Zoo , and together with her brother E. Scripps established the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Philanthropy was an important part of San Diego's expansion. For example, wealthy heiress Ellen Browning Scripps underwrote many public facilities in La Jolla , was a key supporter of the fledgling San Diego Zoo , and together with her brother E.

Scripps established the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Wanting to see Balboa Park become a grand city park like those in other cities, he hired architect John Nolen on two occasions, and , to develop a master plan for the park. In he bought Presidio Hill, site of the original Presidio of San Diego , which had fallen into ruins.

Recognizing its importance as the site of the first European settlement in California, he developed it into a park planned by Nolen with his own funds, and built the Serra Museum designed by architect William Templeton Johnson. In he donated the park to the city, which still owns and operates it; it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. San Diego met the challenge of the Great Depression better than most parts of the country. There was money enough to build a new municipal golf course and tennis courts, to improve the water system, and open a new Spanish-style campus for San Diego State College now San Diego State University.

In the entire Pacific Fleet assembled with 48 warships, naval aircraft, 55, sailors and officers to demonstrate the importance of sea power to the city, and to exhibit to Japan and the rest of the world America's interest in the Pacific.

The expansion of naval and army aviation led Consolidated Aircraft Corporation of Buffalo New York to bring all its employees to San Diego, opening a major assembly plant, Convair , which built Navy flying boats. Ryan Aeronautical Company , which built the Spirit of St. Louis for the famous flight of Charles Lindbergh , also flourished. Since World War I , the military has played a leading role in the local economy. World War II brought prosperity and gave millions of soldiers, sailors and airmen en route to the Pacific a view of the opportunities in California.

The aircraft factories grew from small handcraft shops to gigantic factories. With 40, to 50, sailors off duty every weekend, the downtown entertainment districts soon became saturated. The red-light district was officially shut down, but opportunities were easily available a few miles south in Tijuana, Mexico. Workers poured in from the towns and from across the country, creating a severe housing shortage.

Public transportation trolleys and buses could barely keep up with the demand, and automobiles were rationed to only 3 gallons a week. Many wives who relocated while their husbands were training stayed in the city when their men shipped out and took high-paying jobs in the defense industries.

Convair was the largest employer in San Diego, with 32, well-paid workers in the mids. In it was bought out and became the Convair Division of General Dynamics , a large aerospace conglomerate based in Texas. Convair had been highly successful in the s with the B , a very long-range bomber that became the workhorse of the Strategic Air Command. General Dynamics refocused Convair on commercial aviation as the Convair , a two- engine passenger plane, proved highly successful in the world market.

Convair decided to move up to the very rapidly growing world market for medium-range jet passenger planes with the Convair It was designed to rival Boeing's proposed , and Douglas's proposed DC Financial and technical delays left Convair lagging far behind.

After heavy losses, General Dynamics moved all the airplane elements to Texas, and left the San Diego factory with small-scale space and missile projects. As the Cold War ended, the military shrunk and so did defense spending. San Diego has since become a center of the emerging biotech industry and is home to telecommunications giant Qualcomm.

Starting in the s the city and county developed a nationally known craft beer industry; the area is sometimes referred to as "America's Craft Beer capital". After acquiring the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in , the University of California UC built up a presence, with an emphasis on scientific research and cultural opportunities.

For years UC operated an extension program in San Diego. In , following wartime and postwar increases in population and economic growth in San Diego, UC broke ground for a new campus there, and classes at UCSD began in Atkinson , chancellor from to , UCSD strengthened its ties with the city of San Diego by encouraging technology transfer with developing companies, transforming San Diego into a world leader in technology-based industries.

In it moved to a larger location on Aztec Mesa, overlooking Mission Valley, at what was then the eastern edge of San Diego. In it expanded its offerings beyond teacher education and became San Diego State College. SDSU has grown to a student body of more than 30, and an alumni base of more than , The landmark Immaculata Chapel also opened that year.

In the s and early s, the area around Fifth and Island had a concentration of Asian American businesses, specifically of the Chinese, Japanese, and Filipino American communities. Up through the s the downtown area was a focus of civic and cultural life, featuring elegant hotels like the U. Grant and the El Cortez , as well as Marston's, an upscale department store. During the s that focus shifted to Mission Valley with its modern shopping centers. The hotels fell into disrepair, Marston's closed, and the downtown area developed a seedy reputation.

Its urban renewal project focused on the Gaslamp Quarter beginning in , with the goal of making the area a national historic district and bringing upper- and middle-class tourists and suburban residents to downtown San Diego. Since the s the city has seen the opening of the Horton Plaza shopping center, the revival of the Gaslamp Quarter, and the construction of the San Diego Convention Center. A recent boom on the construction of condos and skyscrapers especially focusing on mixed-use facilities , a gentrification trend especially in Little Italy , and the inauguration of Petco Park in the once blighted East Village highlight the continuing development of downtown.

Center city population is expected to rise to 77, residents by ; 30, people currently reside in downtown San Diego. This renewal extended to the surrounding neighborhoods in the s, especially in older urban neighborhoods immediately north of Balboa Park such as North Park and City Heights.

In July the Republican National Committee chose San Diego to be the site of the Republican National Convention , despite initial opposition from the city's mayor, Frank Curran , and despite the fact that the city did not initially bid for the opportunity.

It was widely believed that San Diego was selected because it was the preferred choice of President Richard Nixon. In addition, there were ongoing problems with the proposed venue the San Diego Sports Arena and concerns about adequate hotel space.

According to Forbes, it is the "largest convention of its kind in the world". It failed in in the largest bank failure to date. The cause was bad loans to Smith-controlled companies, which exceeded the bank's legal lending limit. Smith had used the bank's money for his private business and bribed bank inspectors to cover it up. He was convicted of embezzlement and tax fraud and served seven months in federal prison in During the s the city was rocked by the disclosure that J.

Dominelli was convicted in and served 10 years in prison. Hedgecock was forced to resign from office; his convictions were eventually overturned, except for one which was reduced to a misdemeanor.

A civic scandal exploded in with the discovery that city finances had been manipulated with massive losses in the pension fund scandal. One result was replacing the council-manager form of government with a mayor-council system in Deputy Mayor Michael Zucchet took over as acting mayor but had to resign three days later, when he and fellow city councilmember Ralph Inzunza were convicted in federal court for taking bribes in a scheme to overturn the city's "no touch" law at strip clubs.

A third accused councilmember had died before trial. Zucchet's conviction was later overturned. In July , Mayor Bob Filner was accused by multiple women of repeated sexual harassment , [93] [94] and many individuals and groups, including former supporters, called for him to resign.

On August 19 Filner and city representatives entered a mediation process, as a result of which Filner agreed to resign, effective August 30, , while the city agreed to limit his legal and financial exposure.

Beyond the issues regarding the city government, San Diego has experienced scandal on the Federal level as well. On November 28, , Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham resigned after pleading guilty to bribery charges; he was sentenced to 8 years in prison.

After the Californios comprised a numerical majority and owned most of the property; they secured cultural and social recognition, but they failed to control the political system. By , most had left the area and the remainder were on the decline economically.

They profited from the new skills, contacts, and experiences provided by the military, filled many newly opened unskilled labor jobs, gained some high-paying jobs in the military installations and aircraft factories, and were welcomed by the labor unions, especially the Cannery Workers Union. In recent decades advertisers have recognized the purchasing power of the local Latino community.

The younger generations of Hispanics in San Diego and other ethnic groups as well seldom can read Spanish and rapidly abandon the spoken form except in dealing with their elders. Immigrants from China began arriving in the s and settled in two waterfront fishing villages, one in Point Loma , the other in the New Town area where the San Diego Convention Center now stands. Chinese were harshly discriminated against in California and forced into Chinatowns.

In San Diego there was much more freedom; there were no attacks on the 50 or so Chinese fishermen based there. Indeed, they were pioneers in the industry in the s; their peak came in the s.

They specialized in abalone for export to Chinese communities up and down the Pacific coast. One journalist reported, "Even the fins of the shark are eaten by Chinamen, and are by them esteemed to be a great delicacy—as much of a delicacy as a Chinaman would be to a shark. The Chinese continued to settle in San Diego and found work in the fishing industry, railroad construction, service industry, general construction work, food industry, and merchandising.

They were forced into a closed Chinatown but otherwise received less violent attention than suffered by Chinese elsewhere in the West. They soon formed district associations, family and clan associations, secret societies, and business guilds, including the Chee Kung Tong est.

In the s and s, two Chinese Christian missions were organized to help the Chinese with housing, employment, recreational activities, and English language instruction. The Chinese population increased dramatically, especially after the Immigration Act allowed large numbers of businessmen and professionals to migrate from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China.

The lateth-century San Diego Chinese community is made up of a heterogeneous population that includes Cantonese-speaking, Mandarin-speaking, and Hokkien-speaking members, as well as those from a variety of places of origin, including Southeast Asia. Many in the San Diego community have joined together to determine and further their Chinese-American identity. This neighborhood, together with Downtown and Sherman Heights , was one of only a few areas where blacks were allowed to buy and live in homes.

Logan Heights is still home to a great many black churches, some as old as years old. On any given Sunday, hundreds of blacks return to Logan Heights to attend the churches they grew up in. Old Victorian homes still dot the Logan Heights area. There are streets named after some of the founding fathers in Logan Heights including Julian, Irving, and Logan. The neighborhood has complained that it does not get suitable respect or attention from city leaders because of its minority status.

The history of the African American community in San Diego from the s to the s is documented in the Baynard Collection, an exhibit of selected photographs by Norman Baynard, who ran a photography studio in Logan Heights for 46 years. San Diego has historically been a popular destination for Filipino immigrants, and has contributed to the growth of its population.

Navy in one form or another, even in the late '70s and early 80's more than half of Filipino babies born in the greater San Diego area were born at Balboa Naval Hospital.

As a port city San Diego always had a gay and lesbian community , but it was largely closeted. Beginning in the s the neighborhood of Hillcrest began to attract large numbers of gay and lesbian residents, drawn by low rents, high density, and the possibility of an urban dynamic. In the s gay men founded a Center for Social Services in Hillcrest which became a social and political focus for the gay community.

In June they launched the first Gay Pride Parade , which has been held every year since, and Hillcrest is well recognized as the focal point of the LGBT community. All of this helped to promote public understanding. Many LGBT politicians have successfully run for office in San Diego city and county, including Christine Kehoe , former state senator, state assemblymember, and city councilmember; Bonnie Dumanis , county district attorney; Toni Atkins , state assemblymember, former city councilmember; Carl DeMaio , former city councilmember; Todd Gloria , city council president, former interim mayor; and Dave Roberts , county supervisor.

In San Diego was the first city in the country in which active and retired military service members marched openly in a gay pride parade, in anticipation of the imminent removal of the " Don't ask, don't tell " rule for U.

They did not wear military uniforms, but rather T-shirts with the name of their branch of service. Department of Defense granted permission for military personnel to wear their uniforms while participating the San Diego Pride Parade. This was the first time that United States military personnel were permitted to wear their service uniforms in such a parade.
