Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Zalba collection includes the business history of a bakery operated by Basques in Hollister, California. They catered to the local Basques, performing services such as finding them employment in the mines and loaning them money. They also provided supplies for the mines at New Idria.
Mrs. Estephania Zalba came to the United States in the 1890's. She married Frank (Francisco) Zalba [second husband?] and after his death [ca. 1920?] ran the business with her nephew. She died in the early 1940's.
