Description
This collection consists of scattered business papers of the proprietress and nine years' worth of the Minnie Hotel register.
Background
Minnie's Hotel opened for business at 28 South Center Street, Stockton, Calif. in 1951. The business was operated from the first by Mrs. Minnie McLane--later Dugger (1954), then Palmer (1964). This establishment, located in an old, run-down neighborhood, catered chiefly to agricultural workers and transients. Rooms were seventy-five cents a night there at a time when the middle class considered Motel 6's six dollars per night rates a true bargain. The Minnie Hotel ceased operation in 1965.
