Series 1. Personal files, 1884-1963.

Physical Description: 7.6 linear ft.

Scope and Content Note

This series includes Warner's personal files, including correspondence, biographical and educational files, awards, diaries, financial materials, and family photographs. The bulk of the files in this series contain material documenting Warner's involvement in a wide variety of Orange County associations, clubs, and organizations, particularly the Businessmen's Association of Santa Ana, California Gun Club, and First Methodist Church of Huntington Beach. Other files contain personal finance material, and estate and personal records of deceased relatives for whom Warner was legal executor. This includes Ethel M. Warner's diaries from 1934 through 1951, and files maintained by Willis' and Ethel's parents.
Correspondence in this series is largely personal, consisting of letters sent to and from friends, associates, or family members. Some family letters pre-date Warner's birth. Biographical and educational files contain items such as Warner's engineering lab notebook from the University of Southern California. A group of 30 diaries provide extensive documentation of Warner's personal and professional activities from 1930 through 1962, a year before his death. Included with these diaries are some undated recipe books, possibly college-related but more likely date from the summers of 1910 and 1911 when Warner operated a tent city and cafeteria on Methodist camp grounds in Huntington Beach. Financial files contain records of personal income statements and tax records, property deeds and tax records, oil and gas leases and drilling royalty statements.
Photographs in this series are primarily of Warner's family members. A small group of related photographs contain images of Huntington Beach and a tent city, possibly the one operated by Warner in his 20s. Also of interest is a small group of ephemera produced by businesses throughout Orange County from the 1920s and 1960s and collected by Warner, including business cards, advertisements, and calendars.

This series contains extensive documentation of the establishment, daily operations, and sale of Warner's Huntington Beach business, the Warner Hardware Store. The bulk of the files in this series comprise financial records. These files include deeds, invoices, bills of sale, check stubs and returned checks, business ledgers, and inventory records. An extensive collection of receipts gathered from 1925 through 1952 provides contact information for a number of Orange County businesses that operated and dealt with Warner Hardware Store during this time.
Employee paychecks were sampled and approximately 900 were discarded during processing of this collection in order to reduce the size of the files. Sampling methodology and details concerning the information found on the paychecks and their extent are provided in the files under the heading "Paychecks."
This series also includes numerous documents pertaining to federal war material procurement agencies, such as the Office of Price Administration, dating from World War II.

Series 3. Public service career files, 1915-1963.

Physical Description: 5.3. linear ft.

Scope and Content Note

This series includes files from Warner's early public service career prior to his election to the Board of Supervisors in 1938, in addition to files accumulated by Warner while serving in the public sector during his tenure on the Board of Supervisors. Some files document his political activity as a member of the Huntington Beach City Council, Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce, and Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce. Although Warner served as councilman and later mayor of Huntington Beach during the 1930s, relatively little material from the collection relates to this aspect of his career. Some material also relates to Warner's active participation in the commercial development of Huntington Beach and nearby communities, such as records from various chambers of commerce and the Business Men's Association of Santa Ana. A large group of files document Warner's involvement with the Beach Protective Association of Huntington Beach, which actively sought to prevent extensive oil drilling in the area. Other records document Warner's involvement with educational institutions, including his tenure on the board of trustees for Huntington Beach Union High School and his membership in the Peek Family Scholarship Advisory Board.
The bulk of this series comprises files documenting the activities of the Westminster Drainage District, a public corporation contracted to build drainage ditches at a time when Orange County was particularly susceptible to flooding during rainy seasons, of which Warner was secretary. These files contain extensive records of meetings of the Board of Directors, financial transactions, and some planning projects. Files include correspondence; financial and legal materials such as account books, demands, deeds, and financial statements; election notices and records; and minutes.

Arrangement

This series is arranged by organization with which Warner was affiliated. Since many of his activities stemming from this period were continued throughout his life, some material in this series date from later than 1938. For materials relating to Warner's activities on the Board of Supervisors, see Series 4.
