Description
The collection consists mainly of the business and accounting records of the Newhall Land and Farming Company, the White Investment Company, and numerous subsidiaries for the period 1883-1970s.
Background
The Newhall Land and Farming Company was formed in 1883 as one of three companies created out of the estate of Henry Mayo Newhall by his heirs, and would remain a family enterprise until the late twentieth century. When initially set up, it comprised several major ranches in California scattered between Los Angeles and Monterey counties, with a total acreage of 143,000. Its first years were often difficult as it suffered the effects of both external factors such as the Panic of 1893 and some of the internal problems often characteristic of second generation businesses.
