The Grade Papers consist of a 1934 Metropolitan Life Insurance policy, a photostat of a
1914 insurance policy on a San Francisco grocery at the corner of 19th and Copp streets
and a financial ledger. The 398 page Grade ledger contains seventy-three pages of records
dating from January 1919 through August 1921. This date frame suggests that the ledger
records the daily cash flow at Louis Grade's San Francisco grocery. Names of creditors
together with amounts of money paid out to them are indicated. Merchandise is not listed
although a total sales figure for each day is recorded.
