Historical Note

The history of the SFPD predates by decades the scope of the surviving archive. According to secondary sources, there was a police force--of sorts--as early as 1849, coinciding with the population explosion from the Gold Rush. In 1856, the same year as the Consolidation of the City and County of San Francisco, the office of City Marshall was replaced by that of Police Chief. The 1850s also saw the introduction of military drill formation, uniforms, and the use of photography for criminal identification.
By the late 1870s, the period when this collection begins, the police force numbered 400--the "largest single police force in the West"--and in that year, the Chief became an appointed office rather than an elected one.
The 1880s and 1890s saw the introduction of the police patrol wagon and signal box system. In 1896, when James Phelan was elected Mayor, a new City Charter was passed, which gave the mayor the power to appoint members of the Police Commission.
During the 1906 earthquake and fire, police records were salvaged and kept in Portsmouth Square; this accounts for the surviving pre-1906 Board of Commissioners records, Bureau of Identification mug books, and miscellaneous other records.

Subseries 1.3 Officer and employee records, 1915-[1948?]

Physical Description: 2 vols., 1 manuscript box, 1 oversize flat file, 1 microfilm reel (1.0 linear foot)

Scope and Contents

Ledgers and papers that document SFPD police officer appointments, promotions, retirements, charges, injuries, conduct, and pay. The payroll records include Board of Commissioners and SFPD employees who are not officers or patrolmen, such as stenographers and cooks.
In the Chronological Record of Appointments, each of the two volumes is divided into two sections, one for appointments and one for charges against police officers. Depending on the completeness of information entered, the record of appointments can include: officer name, nativity, previous occupation, marital status, date and age appointed, date and cause of removal, rank when removed, and length of service. The record of charges can include: officer name, company, offence charged with, name of complaintant, date of trial, judgment of the Board. The Appointments section includes a name index.
In the Police Officers Record: Trials, Retirements, Resignations, Dismissals, Deaths for 1878-1947, the entries for the Record of Police Officers on Trial include: officer name, Company, charge, complaintant name, trial date, and judgment of the Board. Entries for the Record of Retirements, Resignations, Dismissals and Deaths include: officer name, remarks, and length of service.
The Record of Injured Officers appears to have been compiled or transcribed later than the dates of entry, by the Industrial Accident Commission. Entries record date of injury, name of officer, company, and dates of first and second reports.

Arrangement

Because some volumes appear to have been compiled after the time to which they refer, files in this subseries are arranged by entry dates rather than creation dates.

Subseries 3.3 Theodore Kytka scrapbooks, 1897-1917

Physical Description: 8 vols, 1 flat box (4.6 linear feet)

Biographical/Historical note

Thedore Kytka was a handwriting expert, photographer, and criminal investigator who became famous for his work on high-profile court cases involving forgery and organized crime. He was appointed a special police officer in the Detective Department of the San Francisco Police Department in 1909.
Born in 1864 in Vienna, Austria, Kytka immigrated to the United States in 1887 and began his career as an artist. He migrated from the Midwest to San Francisco in the early 1890s, where he continued his career working for the San Francisco Chronicle, The Wasp, and City Argus. By 1897, Kytka's career detoured, and he became a noted expert of micro-photography and chirography. Kytka developed giant new cameras to photograph and magnify documents and fingerprints in order to crack criminal cases. Attorneys, private investigators, and the San Francisco Police Department hired Kytka for his handwriting expertise, dealing mostly with forgery cases.
He immigrated to the US from Vienna in 1887, arriving in San Francisco from the Midwest in the early 1890s. Beginning as an artist and photographer, he set up a studio and worked for local newspapers such as the San Francisco Chronicle, The Wasp, and The City Argus.
Kytka died in 1919.

Scope and Contents

The Kytka scrapbooks contain clippings of cases that Kytka either investigated and/or in which he served as an expert witness (and possibly cases in which he was simply interested), along with smaller amounts of personal papers and ephemera such as business cards, documents, and target practice sheets; and photographs of himself, family members, and persons and autographs involved in the cases he investigated. One volume is mostly letters to Kytka. Based on the spine numbering, the set originally consisted of at least fourteen volumes, of which eight plus a partial volume of a ninth volume are in the collection.
Kytka's shift towards criminal investigation began sometime in the late 1890s, close to when the surviving scrapbooks begin. They span almost his entire career as an investigator and handwriting expert, including the years he spent with the SFPD.
Famous cases represented in this subseries include: the Fair, Botkin, and Dutard trials; and the Black Hand extortion rackets.

Arrangement

Arranged by original volume number.

Subseries 4.1 Mug Books, 1870-1944 and undated

Physical Description: 29 vols. and 1 flat file (8.0 linear feet)

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of 21 mug books and eight volumes of photographic keys, along with one flat file containing a few additional mugshots. Most of the mug books include both front and profile identification photographs of criminal suspects, although a few volumes ("Amateur fighters," "Pickpockets," and Calif. 1904-1905) consist entirely of front view photos. Accompanying information varies according to date, jurisdiction, or type of suspect; some mug books include merely a booking number, name and alias; others might additionally include: place where booked, booking date, charge, sentence, nativity, age, occupation, physical description or measurements, arresting officer, and fingerprint ID numbers. Entries in the San Quentin and Vancouver mug books sometimes include the case number and/or "O.P." number. One volume of Chinese suspects consists of a combination of mug shots and personal or family photographs, compiled by Inspector Leo R. Callagy of the SFPD and appears to track persons involved with the Tong Wars. The "Prostitution" mug book consists mostly of women. Sometimes booking numbers are cross-referenced from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Keys were originally meant to correspond with mug books, although in these surviving books, all but one key is missing its corresponding mug book. Keys contain handwritten descriptions of criminal suspects, which can include: name, booking number, age, birthplace, physical description (including marks and scars), occupation, charges, sentence, and occasionally case number and arresting officer. In addition to mug shot photographs, keys sometimes include "see" references to letters and wanted circulars. Previous and subsequent arrests are often included. Keys include a name index in front of each volume.

Arrangement

Mug books are arranged according to geographical scope (San Francisco, California, or U.S. and International), then by booking number. Some mug books for San Francisco suspects are further segregated by ethnicity or by crime: Chinese suspects are recorded in separate books, and there are also books for "Amateur Fighters," "Muzzlers," (sex crimes) and prostitution. Some volumes were originally labeled "Foreign" to designate persons outside of San Francisco or California. Numbering in the container list is for shelving purposes only and does not reflect original SFPD numbering, which is included in the titles of each book.

Subseries 4.2 Other Criminal Records,

Physical Description: 6 vols., 3 folders (1.7 linear feet)

Scope and Contents

Besides mug books, the Bureau of Identification records include eight ledgers of other sorts of criminal records, including: a general index of "California reports" containing names, aliases, and jurisdictions (1901-1902); a ledger of City Prison arrests made in the months immediately following the 1906 earthquake and fire; an index to a register of warrants (1929-1935); a ledger of clippings that list trial statuses (1926-1939); two undated index ledgers for prisoners at San Quentin; and two ledgers for prisoners discharged from San Quentin and Folsom State Prisons (1881-1916).
The City Prison Arrests ledger lists name, age, nativity, occupation,race, charge, by whom arrested, street, time, witness, bail or bond, property, dept number, decree, and decree date. Some date stamps from the Treasurer's Office are dated 1908.
Entries in the Index to Register of Warrants list names, dates, and a four-or five-digit case or warrant number, crime or charge, and note on filing status with the District Attorney.
The Trial Status Listings ledger contains daily newsclippings with police department number, case number, name of suspect, charge, plea, and trial status or verdict. What appears to be the booking number, or sometimes a "P"-number number or the notation "Print," is inked in beside some listings.
The Record of Prisoners Discharged from San Quentin and Folsom State Prisons lists prisoners discharged monthly; entries include: commitment number, prisoner's name, length of term, crime, and date of discharge, with remarks or type of discharge. The volume for June 1900 - June 1916 also includes a column labeled "our photo," which is sometimes filled in with a number that may refer to a mug shot. Beginning Oct. 1907, the format changes, with sheets pasted in. These entries specify "date received" and a discharge number; and, instead of a column for remarks, the new format lists prisoners categorically by type of discharge, i.e. paroled, executed, died, out as witness, etc. Each month also includes summary "recapitulation" statistics, including number of prisoners on hand. The May 1881 - May 1900 volume includes a list of prisoners who died at San Quentin, July 5, 1861 - Dec. 21, 1879. Entries in the Index to Records of Prisoners at San Quentin list name, county, charge, and page number. Sometimes O.P. number i s written in red ink and sometimes also/or "2T, 3T, 4T, 5T". Sometimes "female" or race is stamped or written in. Vol. 10 has a separate section listing Chinese prisoners, altho some entries in main section are also stamped "Chinese."

Arrangement

Files are arranged by type, then chronologically. Entries in the Record of Prisoners Discharged from San Quentin and Folsom State Prisons are by month, with separate, interfiled pages for each prison.
