Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The first series of scrapbooks was created by mayor (and future governor) Washington Bartlett, containing articles pertaining to political and civic issues in San Francisco and California from 1855 to 1886, as well as some notes and memoranda chronicling his duties as mayor. Other scrapbooks were assembled by Mary Sheldon Barnes in the 1890s and include articles and other ephemera related to the American West, including material on Native Americans, Oregon territory, Alaska, Pacific and Asiatic relations, and the San Francisco Peninsula. A scrapbook on the 1906 San Francisco earthquake was added to the collection later.
