This website is the result of the history learned while living and working in Hollywood. Many stories come directly from the author's own experience, with certain facts verified through interviews, emails, library visits, and other research.

Although each of the articles have their specific sources listed with them, this bibliography is a compilation of the major sources for the entire collection. It will continue to grow as the site itself does.
