Business papers of Allyne & White, chiefly San Francisco billheads and receipts; stock certificates; correspondence and other material pertaining to the purchase and ownership of Rancho San Vicente in Santa Cruz County, Calif., by the Stanfords (1855-1869), along with some of their business correspondence relating to Pacific Oil and Kerosene Works, which was known for several years as Pacific Oil and Camphene Works; and miscellaneous business papers and a small amount of ephemera of John W. Allyne.
John W. Allyne, in partnership with William White, purchased the Pacific Oil And Kerosene Works from the Stanford Brothers in 1869. The business, one of the pioneer firms in San Francisco, was started by Charles, Josiah and A. Philip Stanford in 1859 or 1860, and was known for several years as the Pacific Oil And Camphene Works. Under the ownership of Allyne and White the firm was located at 121, 123, and 125 California Street, San Francisco (1869-1874); later it was relocated to 112 and 114 Front Street, San Francisco (1874-1885).
