Remi Nadeau (born August 30, 1920[1]) is an American historian.[2] He earned a bachelor's degree from Stanford University and a PhD from the University of California at Santa Barbara.


Remi Nadeau (III) is a grandson of Remi Nadeau, an early French-Canadian emigrant to Los Angeles. In 1861, Nadeau established the first mule-team freight transportation service crossing the Mojave Desert to serve mining areas such as Cerro Gordo and Calico.[3] After the railroads put mule-team freight companies out of business, Nadeau turned to other ventures in the Los Angeles area, including a beet sugar refinery and a hotel.

Several of the books by historian Remi Nadeau recount the history of the early California mining days and of early Southern California, among other subjects.
