Processing Note

Accession SAFR-01148 was cataloged first, at the collection level, in 2007. There was no apparent arrangement to the collection and some of the photographs were in original enclosures. In 2012, accession SAFR-00940 was accrued into (SAFR 21641, P97-007). At this time, both accessions were fully processed; each item was given an item number and placed into an appropriate series/file unit. Since there was no apparent original order, the items have been placed in alphabetical order within each series/file unit.
Dates given for the items reflect the date of manufacture of the photograph or postcard. Many of the photographic prints and postcards in this collection are copies of photographs and were made later than when the original photograph was taken. When the date of the image depicted is different from the manufacture date and is known, it is noted in the respective scope notes.
The descriptions in this collection guide were compiled using the best available sources of information. Such sources include the creator's annotations or descriptions, collection accession files, primary and secondary source material and subject matter experts. While every effort was made to provide accurate information, in the event that you find any errors in this guide please contact the reference staff in order for us to evaulate and make corrections to this guide.

The second gift (SAFR-1148) was received on December 2, 2007, from Allan R. Ottley. This accession contained photographs, post cards, pictures and nitrate negatives; personal papers (including correspondence; research notes; a typed manuscript of the unpublished book, LEE RAIL UNDER; and newsletters); and objects (a belaying pin from the ANNIE M.

Historical or Biographical Note

Allan Robert Ottley (1909-2000) was a librarian and supervisor of the California Room at the California State Library from 1953-1971. He was also an historian and author.
Allan Robert Ottley was born on March 4, 1909 in Vancouver, B.C. to Montague R. Ottley and Catherine Annie Ottley (also seen spelled as Katherine), who were both born in England. The family moved to California when he was 13. Ottley graduated from Santa Barbara High School and earned a B.A. in English and Journalism from Santa Barbara State College in 1934. He trained as a librarian in Riverside, and later worked for the Humboldt County and Sacramento City Libraries, as well as on a WPA cataloging project for the California Department of Education. He was married to Ruth "Nancy" C. Carroll Ottley (January 13, 1913-October 19, 1992).
Ottley served with the Navy in the South Pacific during WWII and was mustered on U.S.S. Antrim (AK-159) on August 24, 1945. After his service, he began his long association with the California Section of the California State Library. According to historian Albert L. Hurtado, he became supervisor of the California Room in 1953 and held that post until he retired in 1971. Ottley served on several committees of the California Library Association, and he was a founding member and past-president of the Sacramento Book Collectors Club and the Sacramento County Historical Society. Governor Pat Brown appointed Ottley to serve on the Civil War Centennial Commission, the California History Commission and the California Heritage Preservation Commission. Ottley's first book, the "first substantial biography of John A. Sutter, Jr." was the second volume published by the Sacramento Book Collectors Club. "The Sutter Family and the Origins of Gold Rush Sacramento," edited, with a biography by Ottley, was originally published in 1943 and reissued, with an introduction by Hurtado, in 2002. Ottley also wrote other books, including "John A. Sutter's Last Days: The Bidwell Letters" which was published in 1986.
Ottley published numerous works for the Sacramento Book Collectors Club, Sidewalk History and the Sacramento City Historic Landmarks Commission and many articles for such journals as the California Historian, Proceedings of the Conference of California Historical Societies and the quarterly newsletter of the Book Club of California. In addition to being works of history, his publications were considered fine examples of the bookmaker's art. Ottley won the Sacramento Book Club's coveted Oscar Lewis award for Western History in 1999. He died on December 30, 2000, in Beaverton, Oregon at the age of 91.

Collection Contents

Envelopes 1-4 in shared collection box; Nitrate Storage

Series 1.  Reference and research materials, circa 1909-1990 (bulk circa 1930-1960)

Extent: 39 items
Language(s): In English.

Scope and Content Note

Items 001-039. These research and reference materials were used by Ottley during his career as a historian, consultant, and author of maritime works, including but not limited to the manuscript of his unpublished book, LEE RAIL UNDER, and the story, "Cracking for Chirikoff." Ottley's personal interests in history included maritime racing, steamboats and steamships. He was a collector of maritime photographs and research and he corresponded with other maritime enthusiasts and researchers. Topics of interest to Ottley included steamships, clippers and rowing, boat and yacht racing, and passenger vessels (material on these topics can be found in the Allan R. Ottley papers, 1823-1997 (bulk 1931-1971), San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park (SAFR 21639, HDC1374). It is likely that some if not many of the photographs from this series were used for Ottley's own research. Of particular note are photographs regarding racing that may have been used for his unpublished manuscript, LEE RAIL UNDER, which is a survey of maritime racing. This manuscript is also found in the Allan R. Ottley papers. Includes black-and-white photographic prints; postcard announcement; Christmas cards; and cellulose nitrate negatives of various vessels, mostly yachts, steamboats, sailboats and passenger vessels, as well as geographic locations. Vessel names and locations that appear in the series are listed below. There are several images of AMERICA (built 1851; yacht). Some of the photographic images are of paintings and of postcards. The original photographs were taken between 1851 to circa 1990, but the physical items in this collection were created between 1930 and 1990. Most of the photographs are reproductions of originals.

  • Victoria, B. C.
Items 001-006, 008-017, 019-039 were received in accession SAFR-01148.
Item 007: AVALON (built 1920; passenger vessel: excursion vessel), and item 018: NENANA (built 1933; paddle steamer: stern-wheeler) were received in accession SAFR-00940; these two photographs were the only photographs in the accession, and they appeared to be part of Ottley's reference and research materials since they were not part of his postcard collection.
Nitrate negatives of Victoria, B.C., 1909, were found in an envelope addressed to Ottley at the State Library from Victor R. Plukas, Bank Historian, Security Pacific National Bank, Los Angeles, California, postmarked July 30, 1971.
The following items were originally housed together in the same envelope: Item 13. EXPLORER (paddle steamer; stern-wheeler); Item 14. GOVERNOR DANA (paddle steamer; stern-wheeler) at the Marysville Landing, 1851; Item 33. unidentified vessel; and Item 34. unidentified vessel
The following items were originally housed together in the same envelope: Item 10. BREMEN (built 1896; ocean liner) and Item 15. HERZOGIN SOPHIE CHARLOTTE (built 1894; square rigged ship).
There was no supporting documentation or notation as to why any of the photographs were included together in the same envelope; therefore all the items were arranged both intellectually and physically according to vessel name.
Two postcards of BALCLUTHA (built 1886; ship, 3m) were left with the research materials in Series 1, rather than be moved to Series 2: Postcards, as they seemed to be used as research materials for his story "Cracking for Chirikoff," rather than as part of Ottley's postcard collection.
