Scope and Content

The Eugene E. Trefethen, Jr. Papers, which were donated to The Bancroft Library by the Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation in 1985, complete a set of six collections held by The Bancroft Library, which shed light on the industrial empire created by Henry J. Kaiser, Sr. and expanded by sons, Edgar F. and Henry Kaiser Jr. Trefethen, virtually a third son to Henry, Sr. and Bessie Fosburgh Kaiser, was a boyhood friend of Edgar Kaiser. He worked his way up through the ranks from manual laborer and, in time, he became a quiet, supremely competent, behind-the-scenes man for the ebullient Henry Kaiser. After Henry Sr.'s move to Hawaii, Trefethen provided financial expertise and home office continuity, which complemented Edgar's globe-trotting leadership style.
Trefethen was known to Kaiser employees and the press as an intensely private person and there are few items of a personal nature in this collection. There is no information about his family business, Trefethen Vineyards, located in the Napa Valley. But his volunteer activities as a fund-raiser for Mills College and the University of California at Berkeley, his alma mater, are well-documented in Series 1. There is somewhat less information about his role as a member of the Oakland Symphony Orchestra Association and the San Francisco Bay Area Council. Trefethen gave fewer speeches than the better-known Kaisers. His speeches were generally quite brief and it appears that he drafted most of them himself. The transcripts of his speeches may be found in Series 1.
The second and third series comprise the most substantial portions of the collection. Series 2 contains corporate files on most of the major Kaiser companies (during the 1960s there were more than one hundred Kaiser companies all around the world). Of particular interest are the World War II era files. Trefethen was, for the most part, located at the Oakland headquarters during the war years, helping to oversee the manufacture of magnesium "goop" for bombs, airplanes (including a joint venture with Howard Hughes), and the Iron and Steel Division of Kaiser Steel Company, Inc. (Kaiser built the West's first steel plant at Fontana, in southern California). Thanks to the continuous exhortations of Henry J. Kaiser, Kaiser executives did not fail to anticipate America's post-war craving for long unavailable consumer goods. Even before the end of the hostilities, Trefethen was involved in planning for the manufacture of automobiles, dishwashers and other kitchen appliances, affordable housing, and building materials such as cement and gypsum.
Among the major companies represented in Series 2 are the Henry J. Kaiser Company and its divisions, Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation, Kaiser-Fleetwings Company, Kaiser Foundation and Medical Entities, Kaiser Motors Corporation, and Kaiser Steel Corporation. Since Trefethen was an officer or a member of the board of trustees for virtually all of the major Kaiser companies, he participated in decision-making in both routine matters and emergencies, such as the 1959 Kaiser Steel Company strike.
Seven countries account for the bulk of the foreign files. These are, in descending order of volume of material: Australia, Argentina, Venezuela, Israel, U.S.S.R., Ghana, and India. Thirty-six other countries are represented by lesser amounts of material. Among the projects documented is Hamersley in Australia, the Guri Dam in Venezuela, and Israel's Dead Sea Works.
Series 4, the general subject files, contains correspondence, memoranda, reports, financial records, and miscellaneous materials, reflecting the range of interests that this high level executive took the time to follow. These include outside companies (competitors, joint-venture partners, and the financial institutions which provided the funding for Kaiser undertakings), government and politics, including the issues reported on by Chad F. Calhoun, the Kaiser companies' representative in Washington, D.C., and raw materials, including bauxite, coal, iron ore, sand, gravel, and gypsum, which the Kaiser companies utilized in their manufacture of aluminum, steel, and building materials.
The fifth series, a personal name, corporate name, and subject name index to Trefethen's filing system is, unfortunately, incomplete. There are four boxes of cards, arranged alphabetically, from A-Polysius.
Edgar F. Kaiser and Eugene E. Trefethen, Jr.'s Kaiser companies files were merged in the early 1960s. For a more complete run of files for the later years, see the Edgar F. Kaiser Papers (BANC MSS 85/61 c).
