Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
California Faces consists of 1,232 photographic and other pictorial portraits of 416 men and women prominent in California's history. The portraits, selected from The Bancroft Library Portrait Collection, offer a diverse selection of artists, writers, businessmen, politicians, scientists, entertainers, and others, primarily from the early nineteenth-century until the present. Individuals from the San Francisco Bay Area tend to predominate since the library's holdings are strongest in this area.
