Recently finished "Committee of Vigilance" by George R. Stewart as recommended by Angus McFarlaine. Interesting reading - Stewart writes history well, too.

One small bit - Joshua Norton was member #339 of the Committee (later to be locally famous as "Emperor" Norton). This must have been before delusions of royalty overtook him.
