Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Segerstrom Collection contains a nearly complete run of all correspondence and financial reports relating to the operation of each of Charles Segerstrom's hotel properties. The Collection contains correspondence and company records related to several business activities of the Segerstrom family, including: mining, hotels, lumber, railroad, and banking interests.
Two generations of the Segerstrom family of Sonora, California were important players in the mining history of the southern Mother Lode and central Nevada (1910-1975). Their extensive papers depict a complex history of personal investments and mining developments in these and other mining districts of the west from Canada to Mexico. The family were also bankers, first in Tuolumne County (1914-1930) then throughout California (c1955-1975), and hoteliers, operating several establishments in San Francisco, Chico and Sonora (c1930-1955). Various members of the Segerstrom family were prominent in local civic affairs and national Republican politics. All of these components of Segerstrom family activity are represented in this collection, which includes business papers of Charles H. Segerstrom, Charles H. Segerstrom Jr. and Donald Segerstrom.
