Title:

Thomas B. Doyle notes on California place names, [193-?]

Creator/Contributor:

Doyle, Thomas B., creator

Abstract:

Handwritten notes taken by Thomas B. Doyle on California place names. The materials are arranged into two groups. The first group is a strictly alphabetical list of California place names, which may or may not have annotations and notes on the etymological origin of a given place name, the history of the place, and the county in which it is located. This series also includes lists of California lakes and mountains (filed in the alphabetical series under "Lakes" and "Mountains"), some with annotations and notes. The second group of materials is a list of cities and towns in California, arranged alphabetically by county and then alphabetically by city or town. This list also includes annotations and notes on etymological origins and history. These notes were one of the sources used by Erwin G. Gudde in the research that led to the publication of his book, California Place Names, in 1949.
