Abstract:

Contains several hundred typewritten and handwritten letters on business letterhead stationery from a wide array of organizations and persons located in California and the United States. Many are from newspapers, magazines, and newspapermen. The letterheads themselves form a significant aspect of this collection and include pictorial letterheads and multi-color logos. Most of the letters are addressed to Joseph R. Knowland in his capacity as owner of the Oakland Tribune. Some of the correspondence is addressed to his son, William F. Knowland. Some of the correspondence deals with the Knowland's personal and political activities. Also includes telegrams, miscellany, clippings, and undated correspondence. Included in the miscellany is the professional baseball contract of Russel J. Knowland with the Oakland Baseball Club [i.e. Oakand Oaks], signed on behalf of the club president C.L. Laws by Joe Blumenfeld and dated Feb. 27, 1948. Also includes one folder of correspondence by the original collector of the materials, James Oliver Dunning, a former employee of the Oakland Tribune and the San Francisco Newspaper Agency.
