Biography

The Granger family flourished in Butte county during the second half of the 19th century. The head of this clan, Lewis C. Granger (?-1890), an attorney and Justice of the Peace, represented his county in the State Assembly from 1883 through 1887. L.C. Granger was also a land registrar who owned agricultural lands and a gold mine in the vicinity of Oroville. Granger's son-in-law, David B. Hays, farmed orchard and row crops at Oroville.

Scope and Content

The bulk of these papers consists of business and family correspondence written to L.C. Granger while he was in the State Assembly. D.B. Hays informs him about activities on Hays' ranch. Adolf Ekman, who seems to have acted as Granger's business agent during his absence, keeps him abreast of his mining business. The correspondence also contains several charming, chatty, family letters from Alfred Granger, L.C.'s son, (a pharmacist in Sacramento), to his sister, Belle.
