Scholarly interest in the Franciscan missions (1573-1763) of La Florida can be traced to 1925 and books by historians Herbert E. Bolton and Mary Ross. During the 1930s and 1940s, historians used documents to gather more information and to attempt to locate mission sites. From the late 1940s into the 1950s archaeologists joined in that task, a process which continued again in the 1970s.
