Abstract: This collection contains correspondence, reports, maps, plans, photographs, realia, and ephemera relating to the life and career of William L. Honnold (1866-1950), a pioneering American mining engineer in South Africa, who later became a major benefactor to the Claremont Colleges, and his wife, Caroline Burton (1868-1954). The collection documents in particular Honnold’s early career in the coal fields of Minnesota and gold fields of California; his activities in furthering the technique of deep mining in South Africa; his position as arguably the first mining engineer in to fully combine the roles of engineer, business entrepreneur, and top corporate executive; his long friendship with Herbert Hoover and his contributions to World War I relief in Belgium and Northern France as a member of the Commission for Relief in Belgium; his long friendship with Sir Ernest Oppenheimer, and their founding of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa; his “retirement” to California in the 1920s, and his subsequent business ventures, many with members of the Mudd family; and his philanthropic activities, the bulk of which benefited the Claremont Colleges, as well as his alma maters, Knox College and the Michigan Mining School (now Michigan Technological University). Photographs from Honnold’s life in South Africa graphically portray Johannesburg’s elite at the height of the Edwardian age. Extensive financial records from the 1920s onward, including virtually complete accounts paid, document the contemporary cost of living, such as food; workmen’s and servants’ wages; automobile maintenance; travel; jewelry, artwork, and other luxury items; and taxes.

Acquisition Information

The Honnold papers were transferred to the custody of Special Collections at some time between January 1981 and October 1987, but remained in Mabel Shaw Bridges ("Big Bridges") Auditorium until at least November 1987. They were physically moved to the Honnold Library by the end of 1988. Certain photographs now among the Honnold papers were acquired at an earlier date, possibly after Honnold's death in 1950 or that of his wife in 1954.

Custodial History

William L. Honnold's papers appear to have been delivered to the Claremont Colleges by the Honnold Foundation at some time in 1955. They were initially stored in the basement of Mabel Shaw Bridges ("Big Bridges") Auditorium, where in January 1981 they were found "in a rather open area ... apparently no one realized the value of them, or what use was to be made of them"; they were at that time moved and placed under lock and key [Charles E. Gross to Patrick Barkey, memorandum, January 22, 1981].

Accruals

No additions to the collection are anticipated.

Processing Information

The Honnold papers appear to have been foldered, boxed, and summarily inventoried by the end of 1988. Additional processing was done by Tsegaye Gotta, a Claremont Graduate School student, from September 1988 until possibly as late as mid-1990. Copies of the inventory Gotta compiled are annotated "revised 1992 / revised p. 21-24 5/29/96". The arrangement in this inventory of the materials prior to 1931 follows no apparent pattern, and the original order of the chronological files from 1931 onwards was disturbed. 7 document cases of materials were separately inventoried, and approximately 10 per cent of the papers remained unprocessed. The papers were reprocessed, incorporating the separately inventoried and unprocessed materials, re-arranging the inventoried materials prior to 1931, and wherever possible restoring the original order of the chronological files, by Michael P. Palmer, MLIS, in 2012. A concordance of current and former box and folder numbers is available from Special Collections staff.

Biography

William Lincoln Honnold was born in Oconee, Illinois, on 16 April 1866, the son of the Rev. Robert and Sarah (Ernest) Honnold. His mother died in 1870, his father in 1876, and Honnold was raised by his stepmother, Mary E. (Norris) Honnold (1843-1924) in Camp Point, Illinois. After preliminary study at Knox College, Galesburg, Illinois, in 1886-87, and at the University of Michigan, 1887-88, and after several times interrupting his formal schooling to gain practical experience, Honnold received an E.M. from Michigan College of Mines, Houghton, in 1895.
In 1893-1895, while still an undergraduate, Honnold was employed by the Mahoning Ore Company, in Hibbing, Minnesota. He married Caroline Burton, a resident of Santa Ana, California, who was born in Chicago on 7 October 1868, in San Francisco, on 12 November 1895. In 1896, he resigned from the Mahoning Ore Company to become superintendent of the California Exploration Company, San Andreas, California, prospecting various gold-bearing claims. From 1898 to 1899, Honnold was manager of Thorpe Gold Mining Company, and from 1899 to 1902, consulting engineer in America for the Consolidated Mines Selection Company (London), in which capacity he traveled widely, examining and advising on both metal and coal mines in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. In 1902, he went to South Africa where he became involved in gold and diamond mining as consulting engineer, again for the Consolidated Mines Selection Company. He became managing director of the company in 1912, and chairman of the subsidiary companies Brakpan Mines, Springs Mines, The New Era Consolidated, and the Transvaal Coal Trust. He also served as vice president of the Chamber of Mines, and a member of the Council of Education, in Johannesburg, South Africa. Through his mining activities Honnold became acquainted with Herbert Hoover, and the two became fast friends. He left South Africa in 1915, and was appointed London director of the Commission for Relief in Belgium (CRB), headed by Hoover. He transferred to New York in August 1916, as director of the Commission in the United States, a position he held until December 1918. For his wartime work for Belgian relief he was made a commander of the Order of the Crown and received the Médaille Commémorative du Comité Nationale. He later became director of the Commission for Relief in Belgium Educational Foundation. In 1918-1919 Honnold served as special representative in Europe of the Guaranty Trust Co. of New York and associated banks, to facilitate the rehabilitation of Belgian finances. He subsequently visited South Africa, and on returning spent some time in London and New York in connection with the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa, which he had founded with Mr. (later Sir) Ernest Oppenheimer in September 1917, and of which he was, with Oppenheimer, one of the two permanent directors.
The Honnolds moved to California in 1922, and in 1924 were domiciled in Los Angeles, where Honnold shared an office in the Pacific Mutual Building with Seeley W. Mudd and the latter's sons, Harvey S. Mudd and Seeley G. Mudd. In 1926, the Honnolds established the Honnold Foundation, to support religious, charitable, and educational services. Honnold took particular interest in the Claremont Colleges. He was on the first Board of Fellows of Claremont College (now Claremont Graduate University) named in 1925, and succeeded his friend and colleague Seeley W. Mudd as president of the Board the following year. He and his wife provided the funding for the Honnold Library, dedicated in 1952, that serves as the central library for the colleges. Honnold was also an honorary trustee of Pomona College, and a trustee of the California Institute of Technology. Honnold maintained an interest in civic affairs, serving on the Board of Commissioners of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, and as chairman of their Engineering Committee, from Feburary 1930 to July 1933.
Honnold was made LL.D. by Knox College in 1927; D.Sc. by Claremont College in 1936, and D.Eng. by Michigan College of Mining and Technology in 1937. He died at his home in Bel-Air on 6 May 1950, and is buried in Oak Park Cemetery, Claremont; Caroline Burton Honnold died at home in Bel-Air on 18 July 1954, and is buried with her husband.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The William L. Honnold papers contain correspondence, reports, maps, plans, photographs, realia, and ephemera relating to the life and career of William L. Honnold (1866-1950), one of the first mining engineers to successfully combine the roles of engineer, business entrepreneur, and corporate executive, and a major donor to the Claremont Colleges.
The collection falls naturally into three chronological periods: (1) the years prior to 1915, encompassing Honnold’s early life and active mining career, from the 1890s until his departure from South Africa; (2) the years 1915 to 1924, encompassing Honnold’s service in World War I relief, his cooperation with Ernest Oppenheimer in the founding of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa in 1917, his business activities, and his move to California in 1922; (3) the period from 1924, when Honnold and his wife became domiciled in California, onward, encompassing Honnold’s increasingly diversified business activities and his philanthropic activities, in particular his support of the Claremont Colleges.
The records for the first period constitute Series 1: United States, and Series 2: South Africa. They contain primarily mining reports and correspondence addressed to the Consolidates Mines Selection Company of London, for whom Honnold worked as a consulting engineer from 1899, first in the United States (the extant reports relate to mines in Arizona, California, and the Yukon), and from 1902 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The reports document Honnold’s technical abilities as a miner and his skill as an administrator: in 1912, he became Managing Director of the company in South Africa, and Chairman of the Board of the subsidiary companies under its direct control. Much of the correspondence relates to Honnold’s dealings in the stock of Consolidated Mines Selection Company, and reveals the business acumen that made him so financially successful.
The records for the second period, 1915-1924, are fragmentary. Neil C. Cross, Honnold’s Los Angeles secretary from 1924 onward, wrote on 30 August 1954 to John T. Staker, husband of Honnold’s niece, “I recollect that about 1916 W.L. employed Rollin B. Burton [Caroline Honnold’s nephew, who served as Honnold’s New York secretary (“investment” or “fiscal agent” and “tax adviser”) from 1917 until 1937] to keep his record and files and that after W.L. came out here the files were put in storage in New York or New Jersey” [Box 60, Folder 8]. The surviving materials most probably constitute those Honnold considered most memorable or most important from a legal standpoint. They relate primarily to Honnold’s World War I relief work, his mission in 1918-1919 on behalf of the Guaranty Trust Company of New York and other financial institutions to help restart the Belgian economy, and the founding of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa in 1917. Records of the first two can be found in Series 3: United States, in the subsection ”Civic and philanthropic activities”. Records of the founding of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa constitute the earliest part of Series: 5: Anglo American Corporation of South Africa. Those relating to the founding of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa were carefully selected, cataloged, and filed in a safe deposit box; they omit many telegrams and letters known from other sources to have passed between Honnold and Oppenheimer at this time.
The records for the third and last period, 1924 onward, relate to Honnold’s “retirement” in California, his house in Bel-Air, the establishment of the Honnold Trust in 1926, and his philanthropic endeavors in support of the Claremont Colleges, the California Institute of Technology, and his almae matres, Knox College and the Michigan College of Mining and Technology (now Michigan Technological University). The materials comprise those records created by Honnold and Cross in Los Angeles, together with those records created by Burton in New York and forwarded by him to California. Cross arranged those for 1924 through 1930 by subject: these records now constitute Series 3: United States, and the pre-1931 sections of Series 6: Honnold Foundation and Series 8: Personal and family. In 1931, Cross changed to a chronological system, with annual files on each subject. These materials now constitute Series 4: Chronological files. Certain legal and tax records for 1931-1938 were removed from this series in the 1970s or 1980s by a prior processor of the collection to a separate box and refoldered; as it proved impossible to determine with absolute certainty to which year each of these files belonged, no attempt was made to reincorporate these files into Series 4, and they were retained where they were found; they can now be found in Series 3: United States, Subseries 3.4: Financial and legal. Access to the files is through a series of card files compiled by Cross—a single alphabetical file for 1924-1930, and separate alphabetical card files for each year from 1931 onwards—that give the title(s) of the file(s)containing materials relating to a particular individual or subject. The files are largely complete; for files known to be missing from the collection, see “Items Removed from the Collection” in the administrative notes at the beginning of this finding aid. The extant records offer considerable detail on Honnold’s various business ventures (many with members of the Mudd family); his extensive correspondence with colleagues and friends, including many from his earliest days in Minnesota and South Africa; his interest in Republic politics (in particular, his devotion to “the chief”, Herbert Hoover); his concern for education and support for educational institutions; and his deep affection and concern for the welfare of his wife Caroline. Extensive financial records from the 1920s onward, including virtually complete accounts paid, document the contemporary cost of living, including basic foodstuffs; workmen’s and servants’ wages; automobile repair; jewelry, artwork, and other luxury items; and taxes.
For ease of reference, certain materials originally found in the above series have been arranged in separate series. The records of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa (Series 5), although incomplete, offer important insight into the circumstances immediately leading to the founding of the company, and its development in the first critical years. Honnold’s correspondence with Julius S. Wetzlar, whom he had known as a member of the Consolidated Mines Selection Company Board of Directors since at least 1904 is especially illuminating. The records of the Honnold Foundation and the Honnold Trust (Series 6, supplemented by financial and legal records in Subseries 3.5 and Series 7: Ledgers and checks) document the creation, funding, and operation of the institution through which Honnold funded his gifts to the Claremont Colleges, the California Institute of Technology, Knox College, and the Michigan College of Mining and Technology.
Series 8 contains personal and family records of William L. and Caroline Burton Honnold. With few exceptions the materials cover the period prior to 1931; similar materials for the period 1931 onwards are to be found in Series 4: Chronological files. The records include the diary, sermons, and other writings of Honnold’s father, the Rev. Robert Honnold. Family papers include correspondence with Paul M. Folckemer, husband of Honnold's only full sister, Mary, and more extensive financial records and correspondence of Caroline's elder sisters, Mary Burton Curtis and Jessie A. (Burton) Shipman, whose financial affairs Honnold managed from at least the early 1920s, as well as correspondence with the latter’s husband, Charles Goodrich Shipman, MD, with whom Honnold had at least one joint business venture. Honnold's personal papers include his diplomas and awards; a blueprint of the couple's modest first house in Hibbing, Minnesota; life insurance policies from Honnold's earliest years as a mining engineer until 1931; and passports for both William and Caroline for the years the couple lived in South Africa through 1930. Extensive files give a complete accounting of the costs, and (incomplete) plans for the building of the Honnolds' Bel-Air residence. Additional materials document the relationship between the Honnolds and their long-time principal servants, chauffeur Joe Silvera, and housekeeper Josephine Sullivan. Other materials record Honnold's continued interest, both family and business, in his home town of Camp Point, Illinois. The papers include copies of many of Honnold’s writings, including most notably a “diary” of a 1934 deep-sea fishing cruise with Herbert Hoover, as well as Caroline's letters to Honnold during a six-month trip from South Africa to Camp Point and Ely, Minnesota, in 1904.
Series 9: Photographs, documents all aspects of Honnold's life, including his father and maternal relatives, his infancy and childhood in Illinois, his days as a student and young miner in Minnesota, his marriage, his work in California, his life in South Africa, his World War I relief service in Belgium and Northern France, and his retirement, business activities, and community service and philanthropic work in the United States. The series includes a number of photographs of Caroline Burton and her family from the period prior to her marriage to Honnold in 1895. The photographs from the Honnolds' life in South Africa portray the mining, government, and military elite in Johannesburg in the final years of the Edwardian era. The photographs from Honnold's service with the Commission for Relief in Belgium, as well as later photographs (many signed) of Herbert and Lou Henry Hoover illustrate Honnold's life-long friendship with and devotion to "the Chief".
Audio materials (Series 12) contains the audio recording of a January 1989 interview with Honnold’s niece, Mrs. Irene (Folckemer) Staker, then 92 years old, who reminisces about her uncle.
Series 13: Realia and ephemera, consists of non-documentary materials in the collection. They include a leather briefcase inscribed to Honnold from his colleagues at the Commission for Relief in Belgium, his masonic apron, and a considerable number of medals commemorating World War I relief in Belgium and Northern France, including the neck and lapel versions the Croix de Commandeur de l'Ordre de la Couronne, awarded Honnold by Albert I. of Belgium, as well as political medals documenting both William and Caroline Honnold's participation as alternate delegates at Republican National Conventions from 1928 to 1940. The series also includes three pieces of Caroline Honnold's jewelry, and a number of silver grooming and dining items.

Separated Materials note

Certain files concerning "Camp Point matters" (relating to William's relatives, as distinct from Caroline's), the Claremont Colleges, Herbert Hoover, and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (of whose Board of Directors Honnold was a member from 1930 to 1933), listed in the card indexes to both Series 3: United States and Series 4: Chronological files, cannot be found. A large number of photographs of Herbert and Lou Henry Hoover, which had earlier come to Special Collections, most probably from the estates of William L. and Caroline Honnold, were transferred on 21 August 1980 by David Kuhner to the Sprague Library, at that time the principal science library for the Claremont Colleges, and incorporated into a "Hoover Collection" of documents to accompany the Hoover Collection of printed books. It is possible that Kuhner, the Librarian at Sprague, who had access to the Honnold papers in "Big Bridges" Auditorium, may have removed additional, textual materials relating to Hoover to the Hoover Collection in Sprague. Sprague Library has since closed, and those materials from its collections that have been positively traced to William L. and Caroline Honnold have been returned to the Honnold papers. However, other materials, including those for the 1932 election, could not be identified, and are considered missing. In addition, materials relating to Honnold's service with the Metropolitan Water District now form a separate collection within the Water Resources Collection; they have not been returned to the Honnold papers. Since removal of materials from the Honnold papers to other library collections can be proved, it is probable that the documents relating to the Claremont Colleges were also removed from the collection at some earlier date, and these may well be among the materials in the Vertical Files in Special Collections.

Series 2.  South Africa, 1902-1915.

Physical Description: 7 linear feet.

Scope and Contents note

This series contains materials relating to William L. Honnold's career in South Africa, first as Consulting Engineer, and from 1912, as Johannesburg Managing Director of Consolidated Mines Selection Company and chairman of all the Transvaal companies under the company's immediate control: Brakpan Mines, Springs Mines, the New Era Consolidated, and the Transvaal Coal Trust. The records of the company itself include minutes of the Board of Directors from September 1912, when Honnold joined the Board, until his departure in May 1915. Honnold's reports to the chairman and directors consist almost entirely of weekly reports on operations at each of the company's mines. There are separate files on Brakpan Mines, the company's most important holding at the time, and Honnold's special interest. The correspondence from the London Secretary (Charles W. Moore) relates almost exclusively to Honnold's investments in the stock of the company and its subsidiaries. Additional files contain "confidential" and "private" correspondence with Moore, not only relating to Honnold's investments but also, inter alia, to more personal matters, such as the building of Honnold's house in Johannesburg, the purchase of furniture in Europe and its transportation to South Africa, Caroline Honnold's travels, and her personal effects. Other files contain extensive confidential and private correspondence with other members of the Consolidated Mines Selection Company Board, including Walter McDermott, from 1912 until his death in 1940 Chairman of the company; and London Managing Directors Berthold Kitzinger (1871-1922), nephew of Anton Dunkelsbühler, and Julius (Jules) Sigismund Wetzlar (1866-1938). (Both Moore and Wetzlar later joined the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa, the former in 1918 as London Secretary, the latter as a Board member and ultimately Deputy Chairman.) The letters from Robert Goering, of Berlin, a German member of the Consolidated Mines Selection Company Board, and a fellow engineer, are particularly candid, and provide particular insight into the profession of mining engineer in the early years of the 20th century. The correspondence with Mr. (from 1921 Sir) Ernest Oppenheimer (1880-1957) documents the early relationship to the two founders of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa, while the correspondence with Herbert Hoover documents the two men's early collaboration; one of these collaborations, a proposed gold mining venture at Dominion Creek, Yukon Territory, is further detailed in the correspondence with A. Chester Beatty. Four bound letterbooks contain additional correspondence for this period, with these and other individuals.

Series 3.  United States, 1912-1938. Bulk, 1924-1930

Physical Description: 17 linear feet.

Scope and Contents note

This series contains materials relating to William L. Honnold's career after his return to the United States in 1917. The bulk of the materials date from 1922, when Honnold moved from New York City to Ocean Park, California, through 1930, when Honnold's (California) secretary, Neil C. Cross (1886-1964) instituted a new chronological filing system (Series 3: Chronological files). The records prior to 1924, when Honnold engaged Cross as his secretary, are incomplete, and consist primarily of (1) a few papers relating to Honnold's service as director of the New York office of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, (2) telegrams and correspondence relating to Honnold's 1918-1919 mission to Europe on behalf of Guaranty Trust Company and other United States financial institutions to help restart the Belgian economy, and (3) records of a small number of mining and investment ventures. The series contains some materials, in particular legal, and tax documents in Subseries 3.5: Financial and legal, dating from 1931 through 1938. These files were originally maintained by Cross among the files for the appropriate years in Series 4: Chronological files, but were removed, probably in the 1980s by a prior processor of the collection, to a separate box. As these files had been refoldered and the folder titles altered, it was impossible to determine with absolute certainty to which year each of these files belonged; consequently, no attempt was made to reincorporate these files into Series 4, and they were retained where they were found. In addition, files relating to the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa, the Honnold Foundation, and personal or family matters were transferred to Series 5, 6, and 8, respectively. The remaining materials have been arranged by the current processor into five subseries: (1) Business and investments, (2) Civil and philanthropic activities, (3) Correspondence, (4) Financial and legal, and (5) Memberships. Files within each subseries are ordered alphabetically. The most efficient method of access to the files is the card index Cross compiled (Boxes 107 and 108), which indicates the title of the file in which correspondence on a particular subject or with a particular individual can be found.
 

Card indexes, 1924-1930.

Scope and Contents note

A single file of 3 x 5-inch cards, arranged alphabetically, indicating the titles of folders in which correspondence to or from a certain individual, or relating to a particular topic, for the years 1924-1930 are filed. An similar index, on 4 x 6-inch cards, for the time period 1926-1931 is fragmentary, and appears to represent an abandoned prior attempt.

Subseries 3.1:  Business and investments, 1920-1934.

Physical Description: 135 folders + 2 ledgers + 5 volumes + 1 map.

Scope and Contents note

This subseries contains records of William L. Honnold’s business and investment ventures from 1917 through 1930, with the exception of Anglo American Corporation of South Africa, which forms a separate series (Series 5); records of business and investment ventures from 1931 onwards are to be found in Series 4: Chronological files. A significant number of Honnold’s most successful ventures—Calaveras Cement Company, Centrifugal Cast Iron Pipe Company, the Kuhnert Syndicate (from 1929 Pacific Alkali Company), and Noranda Mines—owed their success not simply to Honnold’s considerable business acumen, but also to his mining expertise. However, Honnold also participated in the 1924 founding of Hazeltine Corporation, which specialized in the manufacture of radio equipment and electronic circuits. The profits from Centrifugal Cast Iron Pipe Company, Noranda Mines, and Hazeltine Corporation formed the initial capital of the Honnold Foundation. The Galdyne Corporation and General and Mining Investments Corporation were two closely held Canadian corporations Honnold created in preparation for the creation of the Honnold Foundation. Honnold also invested in real estate in San Francisco (the Montgomery and Sutter Building Company) and San Diego (the San Diego Municipal Warehousing Corporation), as well as in banking in Arizona (the Phoenix National Bank and Phoenix Savings and Trust Bank). The Rio Blanco Ranch Company was formed by Honnold and a few close fishing friends as the holding company for a lodge in Meeker, Colorado, where they all vacationed in the summer (the Honnolds continued to spend at least one month at the lodge until the late 1940s). Many of Honnold’s most successful ventures were carried out in conjunction with various member of the Mudd family and Philip Wiseman, with whom he shared an office at 1206 Pacific Mutual Building, in Los Angeles. Less successful ventures included an automobile financing business Honnold entered into with his former chauffeur and mechanic, Gail Hutchinson (1892-1945), the Baja California Development Company, and, most improbable of all for a man of Honnold’s business acumen, the General Real Estate and Trust Company, a syndicate incorporated in Switzerland in 1921, with the purpose of recovering the estates of the Austrian Archduke Frederick seized by the Austrian republican government after World War I.

Subseries 3.2:  Civic and philanthropic activities, 1914-1930.

Physical Description: 35 folders.

Scope and Contents note

This subseries contains records of William L. Honnold’s civic and philanthropic activities for the period 1919 to 1930. These activities can be broadly grouped into: (1) Belgian post-World War I development, and (2) support for educational institutions. The former include a small number of documents relating to the Commission for Relief in Belgium, of which Honnold served as London and later New York director, and to the C. R. B. Educational Foundation, which was incorporated in 1920, and endowed with residual funds from the liquidation of the assets of the Commission for Relief in Belgium. Its operations included the sponsoring of Belgian-American exchange fellowships, the fostering of Belgian-American cultural relations, and aid to child health and nutrition programs in Belgium. The bulk of these records consists of telegrams relating to the mission Honnold undertook in 1918-1919, on behalf of the Guaranty Trust Company of New York and other United States financial institutions, to facilitate the rehabilitation of Belgian finances. The remaining records relate largely to Honnold’s support for educational institutions. Once Honnold secured the assets he deemed sufficient to meet the present and future needs of himself and his wife, he determined to devote the bulk of his remaining assets to the support of academic institutions, in particular his alma maters Knox College and the Michigan College of Mining and Technology; California Institute of Technology, where he served on the finance committee of the Board of Trustees; and the Claremont Colleges, where he was an original member, and second president, of the Board of Fellows of Claremont College, and an honorary member of the Board of Trustees of Pomona College . Honnold’s interest in supporting academic institutions led to the establishment n 1926 of the Honnold Foundation (see Series 6), whose records the documents in this subseries antedate and supplement. The records for the individual institutions consist of correspondence, committee minutes, and receipts for donations. The subseries also contains records of subscriptions and donations to other institutions and organizations; these also antedate and supplement similar records of the Honnold Foundation in Series 6, and the “Donations” and "Eleemosynary matters / requests for donations" files in Series 4: Chronological files.

Subseries 3.3:  Correspondence, 1914, 1918-1931.

Physical Description: 84 folders.

Scope and Contents note

This subseries contains correspondence files for William L. Honnold for the period 1919-1930. Approximately half the correspondence relates to fellow mining engineers in the United States, South Africa, and Great Britain. Honnold maintained correspondence with several of these individuals, including Samuel Evans, Fred Hellman, Charles W. Moore, and Thomas Arthur Rickard, for decades. Seeley G. and Harvey S. Mudd, Lewis Webster Wickes, and Philip Wiseman shared offices with Honnold and partnered him in various business ventures over a period of many years. Of those correspondents who were not intimately connected with mining, a significant number, including Sir Charles Briggs, Sir Charles Crewe, Sir Percy Fitzpatrick, T. W. M. Fuge, and Sir Harry Ross Skinner, were from government and military circles in South Africa. Edgar Rickard (Thomas Arthur Rickard’s cousin), with whom Honnold maintained a business relationship for decades, was a friend and colleague from the Commission for Relief in Belgium. The subseries contains considerable correspondence with Caroline Honnold’s nephew, Rollin Beach Burton (1881-1973), who from 1917 to 1937 served as Honnold’s secretary and personal assistant (“fiscal agent and income tax adviser”) in New York; this correspondence relates to all aspects of Honnold’s life, personal as well as business. There are also substantial General Correspondence files, for correspondence that neither Burton nor Neil Cross (1886-1964), from 1924 Honnold’s secretary in Los Angeles, felt warranted a separate folder. Access to the Burton and General Correspondence folders is greatly assisted by the alphabetical card index for 1924-1930. The “Christmas greetings and gratuities “ file, continued in Series 4: Chronological files, contains the names and addresses of those friends and colleagues to whom Honnold felt close enough to send communications at Christmas.

Subseries 3.4:  Financial and legal, 1912-1938.

Physical Description: 136 folders.

Scope and Contents note

This subseries contains records of William L. Honnold’s legal and tax affairs. The records cover primarily the period 1922-1930. However, some legal and tax records extend to 1938: these files were originally among the files now constituting Series 4: Chronological files, but were removed to a separate box, probably by a previous processor of the collection. Since it was impossible to determine with absolute certainty to which year each of these files belonged, these files were not reincorporated into Series 4, but were retained where they were found. The accounting records are incomplete, and consist primarily of financial audits for 1917-1919 and account statements for 1921-1925; the absence of proper statements for the following years is to some extent mitigated by the ledgers in Series 7. The accounts and bills paid provide a detailed view of the cost of living for a couple of substance in Los Angeles in the 1920s. The banking records document the Honnolds’ first settlement in California in 1922 (Ocean Park Bank), and their banking with Pacific-Southwest Trust and Savings Bank through its various mergers and name changes (1928, Los Angeles-First National Trust and Savings Bank; 1929, Security-First National Bank of Los Angeles), all the while retaining their banking connection with Guaranty Trust Company of New York. The legal matters largely concern litigation with the Commissioner of Internal Revenue before the United States Board of Tax Appeals over two matters: (1) the taxability of Honnold’s contributions to the Honnold Foundation, and (2) whether Honnold’s income as Permanent Director of the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa was taxed as community property or a capital asset. The litigation regarding each matter extended over seven years; the final rulings in both cases were against Honnold (Honnold v. Commissioner, Docket No. 55211, United States Board of Tax Appeals, 30 B.T.A. 774; 1934 BTA LEXIS 1269, promulgated May 23, 1934; and Honnold v. Commissioner, Docket No. 72090, United States Board of Tax Appeals, 36 B.T.A. 1190; 1937 BTA LEXIS 609, promulgated December 28, 1937). Additional legal papers largely concern William L. and Caroline Honnold’s wills from 1912 onwards; drafts of papers relating to the Honnold Foundation of 1926, the Honnold Trust of 1936, and the William L. Honnold Family Trust of 1938; and matters relating to Caroline's, and to a lesser extent William L.'s, families. The stock broker files contain records of investments Honnold made for his “personal” accounts; investments transferred to, or made on behalf of, the Honnold Foundation from its foundation to 1930 are filed in Series 6: Honnold Foundation (records of investments made after 1931 can be found in Series 4: Chronological files, where personal, Foundation, and Trust investments are filed together). Tax records include income, gift, county and city (property), and, from 1937, employee Social Security taxes returns, computations, and correspondence for 1923-1938.

Physical Description: 39 folders.

Scope and Contents note

This subseries contains records of William L. Honnold’s membership in various professional, business, political, cultural, and social organizations for the time period 1924-1930. Although Honnold largely retired from active mining when he settled in Southern California, he remained active in the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers and the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America until well into the 1940s. Always an enthusiastic businessman, he also belonged to both the California Development Association (later California Chamber of Commerce), the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, and the California Taxpayers’ Association. A loyal friend and staunch supporter of “the Chief”, Herbert Hoover, Honnold played an active role in Republican party politics on both the national and local levels. Both Honnolds maintained an active social life until well into the 1940s, belonging to several of the leading clubs in Los Angeles, including the Bel-Air Bay and Country Clubs, the Los Angeles Country Club, and the California Club; the records of the last, where both Honnolds often dined, and even appear to have lived for some time prior to the completion of their house in Bel-Air, are particularly extensive. Keen outdoors people, the Honnolds also belonged to the Sierra Club. The Honnolds also belonged to a number of cultural organizations, including the English Speaking Union, the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery, and the Southwest Museum. Later records of Honnold's membership in professional, business, political, cultural, and social organizations can be found in Series 4: Chronological files.

Scope and Contents note

In 1931, William L. Honnold's secretary, Neil C. Cross, instituted a chronological filing system, which brought together all files created in a single year, the files for each year ordered alphabetically by subject. The system was maintained through both William and Caroline Honnold's lifetime, until the records were transferred to the Claremont Colleges. The files for each year typically include "Accounts paid"; files for bank and investment brokerage accounts; principal business ventures, such as the Calaveras Cement Company, Hazeltine Corporation, Hunt Brothers Packing Company, Mayflower Associates, Pacific Alkali Company, and Pacific American Fisheries; principal business associates, in particular members of the Mudd family and Frank L. Taylor; Caroline's sister, Mrs. Jessie A. Shipman (1861-1942), whose affairs Honnold handled, and her son-in-law, Dr. Egerton Crispin (1877-1963); donations; academic institutions supported by Honnold, in particular the Claremont Colleges, the California Institute of Technology, and Knox College; the Republican party; the Rio Blanco Ranch, the Honnolds' vacation home in Colorado; and the Rev. James Fifield's First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. Among the most important files are those eventually labeled "Honnold, William L. and Caroline", which first appear in 1935. These contain notes and memoranda exchanged between Honnold and Cross, on a wide range of personal, business, and financial matters, and provide a guide to the matters that Honnold considered most important at any given time. Of special help in identifying other potential sources for researching Honnold, his colleagues, and friends are the "Christmas greetings and gratuities" files, which give the names and addresses of everyone to whom the Honnold's sent Christmas cards. The information in these files is supplemented by a card file of names, addresses, and telephone numbers compiled between approximately 1935 and 1939. Correspondence with persons and corporations and on subjects that was, in Cross's opinion, insufficient in amount or importance to merit a separate folder is filed in "General Correspondence" folders, one for each letter of the alphabet. In this regard, researchers should bear in mind that even important business ventures or business colleagues may not be represented by a separate folder every year: in years when correspondence concerning these ventures or with these colleagues was light, it may be filed in the appropriate General Correspondence folder. Two features of Cross's filing system should also be noted. First, the "Biographical" files contain biographical accounts not just of Honnold but of others; they also contain copies of Honnold's writings. Second, materials relating to corporations that take their names from individuals are usually filed by the last name of the individual. The most efficient method of access to the files until the early 1940s is the annual card index Cross compiled, which indicates the title of the file in which correspondence for that year on a particular subject or with a particular individual can be found. Although Cross discontinued the index in the early 1940s, by this time Honnold had begun to seriously curtail his activities, so its absence does not significantly impede access to the later materials. The series is largely complete. However, during the course of processing the collection it was determined that certain legal and financial papers covering several years had been removed, possibly by an earlier processor, to a separate box. Since it was impossible to determine with absolute certainty to which year each of these files belonged, these files were not reincorporated into the series, but were retained where they were found, and made part of Subseries 3.4: Financial and legal, where they constitute almost the entirety of the legal and tax records dated after 1930. For other files listed in the annual card indexes but no longer found in the series, see "Items Removed from the Collection" in the general administrative notes to the collection.
