Table of contents What's This?
The papers of Ed Fletcher of San Diego, California, consisting primarily of Fletcher's business records from his years as a noted San Diego land developer, civic leader, and member of the California State Senate. The papers document all aspects of Fletcher's career but are most complete in regard to his water-related enterprises, and include correspondence, legal documents, blueprints, reports and photographs. Although the bulk of the collection consists of business records, a large group of photographs provide a visual record of the Fletcher family.
Colonel Edward ("Ed") Fletcher was a noted San Diego businessman, land developer, civic leader, and California State Senator. He worked to develop the county's water resources and highways, and his efforts contributed significantly to the urban development of Southern California.
