New, Robert Louis Stevenson wiki page at World University and School ... with a section on RLS in California -
and these great books and references ...

And it looks like Edinburgh's Napier University is richly and academically celebrating RLS with this great web site:
(for which they received something like 34,000 pounds to develop, and which gives me some hope financially for World University and School eventually financially too) ...
and humorous video ...
"Organised by Edinburgh Napier University's Centre for Literature and Writing along with the Edinburgh City of literature, Robert Louis Stevenson day is marked to celebrate the writers' birthday. In celebration of the life and work of one of the world's, and Edinburgh's, most famous writers there were festivities all over the city.
Among the day's events, John Sessions and Nigel Planer joined a host of other readers in a day-long reading of Stevenson's Treasure Island, Edinburgh Napier students performed pop-up theatre in the city's Old Town. Take a look at this film we made for a taste of what went on."
