NOTE ABOUT VICTOR CASAS:
Victor Casas is a 10 year old 4th Grade student at Maple Elementary School in Tulare California. In Febuary, Victor and his family went to San Luis Obispo to visit Mission San Luis Obispo. Victor wanted to obtain some information about the mission for a class project at his school. Victor took all the photographs except for the ones he appeared in. While searching for information on the internet about California Missions, Victor found the CALIFORNIA MISSION INTERNET TRAIL website. When Victor searched further for information about Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, he learned that Mission San Luis Obsipo de Tolosa website was not created yet. Victor wanted to create a webpage and contacted Project coordinator, Barbara Scott. Victor provided research information and photographs about Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa for the development of a webpage. (April, 1998)
