The California State Archives Speaker Series continues Thursday, October 25, with author Michael Troyan. The presentation, titled “Twentieth Century Fox: A Century of Entertainment,” is the first studio-authorized look at the mass media empire and its century of entertainment (1915-2015) bookended by empire builders William Fox and Rupert Murdoch. Based on complete access to the company’s archives and key assistance from others including the California State Archives, the book offers a revealing view of the company's history, including tales of its stars and tours of its historic production and ranch facilities.
