Series Description

 

Series A. Political, 1906-1953

Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

This series was originally arranged by subject in more or less chronological order with a large section of overlapping material at the end representing an addition to the original gift. All correspondence has now been separated and rearranged:
 

Subseries 1. Correspondence Out (by FVK or secretary)

Arrangement

Is in strictly chronological order by year, month and day. Where more than one letter for a particular date appears, these are in alphabetical order by addressee.
 

Subseries 2. Correspondence In & General (not written by FVK)

Arrangement

Is arranged alphabetically by the name of the sender. Where there is more than one letter by any one person, these are arranged chronologically.
 

Subseries 3. Reference Material

Arrangement

Includes clippings, circular letters, political hand bills, annotated copies of government documents, printed material, etc. and has been kept under the original subject headings and arranged in roughly chronological order by the earliest year date of the subject folder or group of folders. The material within each subject folder or folders is in chronological order by year, month and day. There are eight oversize scrapbooks at the end of this series.
 

Series B. San Francisco Charter, 1930-1953

Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

This series was originally part of the former and arranged in the same manner. The new arrangement is the same for all three Subseries (Correspondence In, Out, & General, and Reference). Reference uses the original subject headings and is in the original order. Material within each folder is roughly chronological. Two oversize clipping books are found at the end of this series.
 

Subseries 1. Correspondence Out

Arrangement

Is in strictly chronological order by year, month and day. Where more than one letter for a particular date appears, these are in alphabetical order by addressee.
 

Subseries 2. Correspondence In & General

Arrangement

Is arranged alphabetically by the name of the sender. Where there is more than one letter by any one person, these are arranged chronologically.
 

Subseries 3. Reference Material

Arrangement

Includes clippings, circular letters, political hand bills, annotated copies of government documents, printed material, etc. and has been kept under the original subject headings and arranged in roughly chronological order by the earliest year date of the subject folder or group of folders. The material within each subject folder or folders is in chronological order by year, month and day. There are eight oversize scrapbooks at the end of this series.
 

Series C. Interim Committee of Twenty-Five (State Organization, 1936-1945)

Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

This series is almost exactly in the original subject order and with the same general subject headings. Changes may be seen by looking at the old register. Partial lists of correspondents may be found in each folder or in the first folder of a series in the CORRESPONDENCE FILE (Boxes 55-59). Material within each folder of the latter section is in chronological order by year and month. An oversize clipping scrapbook is at the end of the series.
 

Series D. Golden Gate Bridge, 1919-1957

Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

This series was found in considerable disorder. Some material had been withdrawn from the original order and arranged by "chapters" as reference material for a doctoral dissertation. The present arrangement is as close as possible to Keesling's original subject arrangement. The material within each folder is chronological by year except for some enclosures which were kept with the covering letters. Partial lists of correspondents in the front of each folder or in the first folder of a series. Three scrapbooks are at the end of this series.
 

Series E. San Francisco Earthquake, 1906.

Physical Description: Two scrapbooks.
 

Series F. Stanford Material

Scope and Content Note

Arrangement

This material was withdrawn from Series A. and put together as a separate series in a subject arrangement.
