Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Forty-six black-and-white photographic prints used to illustrate Pioneer days in Kern County, an autobiographical account by Arthur S. Crites of his family, early education, and life as a young man and miner in Kern County, California.
46 photographic prints : b&w ; 22 x 28 cm or smaller + 4 maps + 50 leaves (typescript ; 28 cm)

Photographs are unbound, although the three holes punched along left margins suggest that they were once held in a 3-ring looseleaf notebook. Versos of photographs contain editor's proof numbering and notes in black crayon, and inkstamp of "Cal Williams Photo Service" [of Bakersfield?].

Spec. Coll. copy: Photographs are stacked in a modern beige cloth clamshell box, with box title "Illustrations for Pioneer days in Kern County." Laid in with photographs are [50] typescript leaves containing editor's proofs of the cutlines or captions for each photograph as they were to appear in the book; and four maps of Kern County in pencil (two folded), also used as illustrations in the Crites' book.
