Series 6.  Honnold Foundation, 1926-1953.

Physical Description: 5 linear feet.

Historical Note

The Honnold Foundation was created on 24 June 1926, to be "operated and conducted exclusively for religious, charitable, and educational purposes". Initial funding was derived from Honnold's "fortunate ventures" in Centrifugal Pipe Company, Hazeltine Corporation, and Noranda Mines. The Foundation is usually referred to in the Honnold papers as the "Trust" until 2 January 1936, when, as a consequence of litigation with the Internal Revenue Service concerning its tax status, a separate Honnold Trust was created, to which most of the investment functions of the Foundation appear to have been transferred. A third trust, the William L. Honnold Family Trust, was created on 22 December 1938, to provide for the inheritance of William and Caroline's blood relatives.

Chronology of Honnold trusts:

  1. Honnold Foundation.
    • 1926 June 24.
    • Amendment, 1931 December 31.
    • Amendment, 1932 December 30.
    • Amendment, 1934 June 27.
    • Amendment, 1934 November 30.
    • Amendment, 1937 April 19.
  2. Honnold Trust -- 1936 February 1.
  3. William L. Honnold Family Trust -- 1938 December 22.

Scope and Contents note

This series contains records of the Honnold Foundation, created in 1926, and the Honnold Trust, created as its principal investment arm in 1936. The materials comprise declarations of trust, amendments, designations of successor trustees, statements of policy, minute books (for the Honnold Trust only), legal correspondence, investment, accounting, and financial records. The records are largely complete for the period through 1930; the bulk of the records for the period from 1931 onwards can be found in Series 4: Chronological files, in particular the files marked "Honnold Foundation" or "Honnold Trust". Many auditors' reports, balance sheets, and inventories and financial summaries, can also be found in Series 4: Chronological files, in the files marked "William L. Honnold" and "Caroline Honnold". These records are particularly important, as they give detailed accounts of assets held, acquired, or disposed, as well as itemized receipts and expenses, of all five of the entities to which Honnold assigned his assets: (1) the Honnold Foundation, (2) the Honnold Trust, (3) the William L. Honnold Family Trust, (4) William L. Honnold, and (5) Caroline Honnold. The records in this series indicate that, at least initially, there was an attempt to file records of the investments for the Foundation separately from those for Honnold himself. However, the Series 4: Chronological files for the period from 1931 onwards generally file all investment records together, by bank or brokerage house, although each entity had its own account, which is indicated on each document. Similarly, records of donations by the Foundation are kept separate from donations by Honnold himself for the period through 1930; in the Series 4: Chronological files for 1931 onwards, donations are filed either in a general "Donations" file or, for donations to academic institutions such as the Claremont Colleges, the California Institute of Technology, Knox College, and the Minnesota College of Mining and Technology, in the file for the appropriate institution. Income and property tax statements for both the Foundation and the Trust from 1931 onwards can be found in the Series 4: Chronological files, in the folders marked "Income tax" and "County and city tax". For litigation regarding the Foundation's tax status, see Series 3: United States, Subseries 3.4: Financial and legal, under both "Legal" and "Taxes".

Series 7.  Ledgers and checks 1923-1954.

Physical Description: 5 linear feet.

Scope and Contents note

This series comprises ledgers and cancelled checks for four of the five financial entities created by William L. Honnold: (1) William L. Honnold, (2) Caroline Honnold, (3) the Honnold Foundation (created 1926), (4) the Honnold Trust (created 1936) (no ledgers survive for the 5th entity, the William L. Honnold Family Trust, created in 1938 to provide the inheritance of his family other than his wife Caroline). The series also contains the ledgers for the De Melange account Honnold set up in 1925, through which he lent money to Rollin B. Burton, Caroline's nephew and his New York secretary, to invest for the latter's future security. The ledgers provide a detailed record of the assets of each entity, the dates and the amounts for which they were acquired and disposed, and the sources, dates, and amounts of all income and expenses. These provide backup and detail for the audited monthly and annual accounts filed in Series 4: Chronological files, and Series 6: Honnold Foundation. The checks originally accompanied the monthly bank statements now filed in Series 4: Chronological files, but were removed and filed separately in boxes by Honnold's secretary, Neil C. Cross. The checks have been transferred to archival boxes, but otherwise have not been arranged, ordered, or checked against either the check registers or the bank statements.

Physical Description: 5 linear feet.

Note

Genealogies of the Honnold and Burton families, compiled by Michael P. Palmer, are available in Special Collections.

Scope and Contents note

This series contains personal and family records of William L. and Caroline Burton Honnold. With few exceptions (Diplomas and awards; Honnold, William L., Writings; Oak Park Cemetery, Claremont; and Safe deposit box A1012) the materials cover the period prior to 1931; similar materials for the period 1931 onwards are to be found in Series 4: Chronological files. The earliest records relate to the Rev. Robert Honnold, and include his diary, letters to his second wife, Mary Norris, sermons and other writings, and his 1862 appointment as as orderly sergeant in the Illinois Volunteers, as well as a letter to his widow from the physician who treated him for cancer, with a tintype of him after treatment, documenting in graphic detail the primitive nature of medical treatment for cancer in the mid-19th century. The Asbury Life Insurance Company file relates to the liquidation of an insurance company that held a policy on the Rev. Honnold's life that it had apparently failed to honor at the time of his death. Family papers include correspondence with Paul M. Folckemer, husband of Honnold's only full sister, Mary, and more extensive financial records and correspondence of Caroline's elder sisters, Mary Burton Curtis and Jessie A. (Burton) Shipman, whose financial affairs Honnold managed from at least the early 1920s. The series also includes correspondence with Charles Goodrich Shipman, MD, Jessie's husband, with whom Honnold had invested in a project to develop residential properties in Santa Monica, California. Honnold's personal papers include his diplomas and awards; a blueprint of the couple's modest first house in Hibbing, Minnesota; life insurance policies from Honnold's earliest years as a mining engineer until 1931; and passports for both William and Caroline for the years the couple lived in South Africa through 1930. The Bekins Van and Storage file reveals the cost of shipping the couple's furniture from South Africa and of storing it until their Bel Air house was completed in 1925, a period of almost ten years. Extensive files give a complete accounting of the costs, and plans (unfortunately incomplete) for the building of the Honnolds' Bel-Air residence. The Automobile and chauffeur files, with receipts for petroleum purchases, servicing, and repairs, give a rare view into the real costs of owning an automobile in Los Angeles in the 1920s. These, in conjunction with the Travel and tours file, also provide insight into the nature of long distance automobile travel (inter alia, to the Honnolds' summer retreat in Meeker, Colorado) in the same time period. Additional materials in the series document the relationship between the Honnolds and their long-time principal servants, chauffeur Joe Silvera, and housekeeper Josephine Sullivan: Silvera served with the Honnolds from at least 1925 through Caroline Honnold's death in 1954, and Sullivan (1876-1949), who had served with the Honnolds in South Africa, was brought over to the United States by them in 1923/1924, serving until her death in 1949. Other materials record Honnold's continued interest, both family and business, in his home town of Camp Point, Illinois, as well as both his and Caroline's plans for their final resting place in Oak Park Cemetery, Claremont. Caroline's letters to Honnold during a six-month trip from South Africa to Camp Point and Ely, Minnesota--with stops in London and New York outbound, and Paris and London on the return--reveals her affection for her husband. Lastly, the series contains copies of most of Honnold's writings, including his 1908 paper, The Negro in America, delivered before the Fotrnightly Club in Johannesburg, South Africa, and several versions of a paper on South Africa first delivered before the Sunset Club in Los Angeles in January 1935, and periodically revised thereafter. Honnold's "Diary of a deep-sea fishing cruise on the yacht Samona II , October 25th (Wednesday) to November 8th, 1933", with Herbert Hoover, with photographs, can be found in Series 3: Chronological files for 1933, in Box 26, Folder 33. Additional copies of both these works are to be found in the "Biographical sketches" folders among the chronological files for various years.

Series 9.  Photographs, circa 1860-1954.

Physical Description: 5 linear feet.

Arrangement note

The series is arranged as follows: (1) people, (2) localities, and (3) events. Because the number of unidentified photographs in the first group is substantial, it was thought best to organize these by locality and, where appropriate, photographic studio, on the theory that people will tend to patronize photographers in their vicinity, and that family and friends will tend to patronize the same photographers. Hence, if it possible to identify the subject of one photograph it may be possible--using in the case of the Honnold papers the lists of addresses in the "Christmas greetings gratuities" files" (Series 3: United States, Correspondence, Box 11, Folder 7, and Series 4: Chronological Files, from 1936 onwards)--to identify the subjects of other photographs taken in the same locality or by the same photographer.

Scope and Contents note

The Photographs Series documents all aspects of William L. Honnold's life, including his father and maternal relatives, his infancy and childhood in Illinois, his days as a student and young miner in Minnesota, his marriage, his work in California, his life in South Africa, his World War I relief service in Belgium and Northern France, and his retirement, business activities, and community service and philanthropic work in the United States. A significant number of the earlier photographs were donated to the collection in the 1980s by Honnold's niece, Irene Folckemer Staker, daughter of his only full sister, Mary. The series includes a number of photographs of Caroline Burton and her family from the period prior to her marriage to Honnold in 1895. The photographs from the Honnolds' life in South Africa portray the mining, government, and military elite in Johannesburg in the final years of the Edwardian era, before the upheavals of World War I. The photographs from Honnold's service with the Commission for Relief in Belgium, as well as later photographs (many signed) of Herbert and Lou Henry Hoover illustrate Honnold's life-long friendship with and devotion to "the Chief". The bulk of the later photographs, from the Honnolds' "retirement" to Southern California in 1922, relate to the Honnolds' house in Bel-Air; their travels (including the Europe-Asia segment of the 1929 world cruise of the S.S. Franconia) and annual summer vacations in Meeker, Colorado; their friends, including in particular the Mudd family; his service with the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California; and their support for the Claremont Colleges.
 

People, 1860-1953 (bulk 1900-1945).

Physical Description: 2 boxes + 3 photograph albums + 179 folders, envelopes, and items.
 

Burton family, circa 1890-1947.

Physical Description: 5 folders and envelopes.

Scope and Contents note

The majority of these photographs are of Caroline Burton Honnold prior to her marriage in 1895. Additional photographs from the Honnolds' residence in South Africa, 1902-1915, may be found in Boxes 117, 121, and 119 (envelopes 23-24), and among the photographs referenced under "Photographs--People--William L. Honnold". William Giddings Curtis (circa 1850-1900), also known as "the Colonel", was General Manager of the Southern Pacific Company, and was the husband of Caroline's second eldest sister, Mary Elizabeth Burton (see Series 8: Personal, sub "Mary Burton Curtis"). Rollin Beach Burton (1881-1973) was the son of Caroline's second elder brother, Alfred Francis Burton; from 1917 to 1937, he was William L. Honnold's "fiscal agent and income tax adviser" (secretary) in New York. For at least five years prior to her marriage, Caroline lived in Santa Ana, California. Her reasons for settling there are unclear. One photograph of her as a prophetess in the oratorio "Esther", together with (elsewhere in the collection) two photographs of Stella Prebla (later Nau), as well as of several other unidentified female singers, suggests that Caroline had a special interest in singing, and came to Santa Ana to study with Nau. There appears to be no biological connection between Caroline and Burton Hollis Rowley (1893-1979), whose father, Andrew R. Rowley (1857-1918), was born in Ohio, and whose mother, Mary Skinner Rowley (1863-1942), was born in Illinois. It is probable that he was named "Burton" to honor her, and that her status as "aunt" was purely honorary.

Physical Description: 62 folders and items.

Scope and Contents note

Photographs of William L. Honnold's colleagues and friends living in the United States at the time the photographs were taken. The photographs are arranged as follows: (1) individuals identified, and (2) by locality and studio. The subjects are almost equally divided between Honnold's mining and business colleagues and personal friends. The photograph of Honnold and Herbert Hoover working together as members of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, as well as the significant number of autographed photographs of Hoover and his wife, Lou Henry, document their close friendship with the Honnolds. Additional photographs of Hoover and Honnold on a deep-sea fishing cruise on the yacht Samona II, in 1933, can be found in Box 26, Folder 23. The photographs taken in San Francisco and Stockton may be of unidentified members of Caroline Burton's family (possibly her nephew, Roland Beach Burton, who served as Honnold's secretary in New York from 1917 to 1937), and the photographs taken in Anaheim, California, may represent a friendship from Caroline's stay in Santa Ana prior to her marriage in 1895.
