Owning Institution: UC Berkeley, Bancroft Library

About this Collection

The California Views from the R.W. Waterman Family Papers collection contains 164 photographic prints, 8 stereographs, and 3 cartes de visite taken circa 1865-1900. Perhaps as a reflection of Governor Waterman's interests and activities during his career throughout the state, the collection features a broad variety of subject matter and location. Much of the collection relates to the California mining industry, and includes photographs from Waterman's Stonewall Mine in San Diego County and his Calico Mine in San Bernardino County. Also included are several other locations and subjects in San Diego and San Bernardino counties, such as Del Mar, the Hotel Del Coronado, Sweetwater Dam, the San Diego Flume, and various views of the city of San Bernardino and Arrowhead Hot Springs, where the governor resided. Other California locations featured include Yosemite Valley, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, Santa Monica, San Gabriel, Los Angeles, the Lick Observatory near San Jose, Monterey, Oakland, the prison quarry at San Quentin, and the University of California at Berkeley. Also included are scenes of U.S. Navy war ships.... View collection guide.
