Edward H. Mitchell (1867-1932) was one of the earliest and most prolific postcard publishers in the United States. He was born in San Francisco, April 27, 1867-; graduated Lincoln Grammar School 1883; married Idelle Linehan, also a San Francisco native, in 1891; and died October 24, 1932. Mitchell published very early cards colored vignettes that were printed in Germany. He was publishing undivided back cards from his studio at 225 Post Street before the earthquake and fire of 1906 destroyed his printing operation and much of San Francisco. He continued to work out of his home at 3857 Clay Street until he built a plant and warehouse on Army Street. From there he published thousands of divided back cards including many views of San Francisco and the West, series on the Philippines and the Hawaiian Islands, high quality real photo views, comics, artistic designs and a series of early exaggerations of California fruits and vegetables. He printed cards for himself and other publishers, most notably to promote the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition. He gave up the postcard production in 1923 when his oil company became his primary business interest and retired from business entirely in 1928.
