Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The materials described in the container list are part of a much larger collection of printed works by Snow, about 200 titles, which have been cataloged individually and which can be searched on Pegasus, the UCSB University Libraries online catalog.
Charles Horace Snow was born in Lake County, California in 1877, the son of George and Annie Snow, who had come to the frontier from Missouri. He spent his childhood pursuing backcountry activities such as hunting, fishing, and swimming, while getting a basic primary education. While in his teens, he began to support himself as a miner. He had an older half-brother, John Allen Veath, who obtained a position as assistant superintendent of a mine in British Columbia, Canada. Seeing an opportunity, Veath sent for his 17-year-old brother to join him, and Snow traveled north by train. After a few successful years in the Pacific Northwest, the brothers went to Panama to work a mine there. However, Snow soon contracted malaria and was sent home to California.
