Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Manuscripts, diaries, correspondence, photographs, ledgers/account books, scrapbooks, newspapers (including 1883-1885 Santa Barbara Daily Independent), papers and documents from the San Francisco Examiner. Also, tape and partial transcript of recording by Nathan A. Tebbetts. Artifacts include three Colt revolvers.
The Tebbetts were newspaper people, with close links to Thomas A. Storke (Santa Barbara News-Press). Despite the title of the collection, much of the material relates to Nathan A. Tebbetts' life. Nathan grew up in Santa Barbara, but worked with the San Francisco Examiner for many years, mostly re resort advertising. His father, George P. Tebbetts, founded the SB Daily and Weekly Independent, and the collection includes financial records of the paper in the 1880s and 1890s.
6 Linear Feet (2 document boxes, 3 oversize boxes, 1 map cabinet folder, 3 revolvers, 2 chests)
