This enlightening volume provides a wealth of detail on the vast efforts undertaken by both states and foreign nations when electing to participate in the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition. The state of California was one of the dozens of attendees (over 40 nations, plus most states), and their representation was one of the most impressive.

A massive, albeit temporary, building was constructed to house the numerous exhibits showcasing the industrial, agricultural, civic and cultural highlights of the Golden State. A summary of the organizational details, construction process, and financial reports are also included.
