Haviside. These materials date from 1908 to 1954. The Haviside Company was involved in sail-making and ship chandlery. One of the order books lists an order for a hatch cover for the C.A. THAYER. The collection is available for research use without restriction.
Background
The company was founded in 1879 by J.J. Haviside. Originally, the firm's business was confined to rigging, caulking, ship reconditioning, etc. and had almost exclusive control over this business in San Francisco. Expanding in the late 1920s, the firm, by 1930, included a ship chandlery and supplies division, rigging and sail-making division, and a derek barge and salvaging division.
