Here, from 1881-1906, stood the library of Hubert Howe Bancroft, who in 1860 began to collect the wealth of material which was to subsequently result in the writing of the monumental history of Western North America.. In 1905, the library was purchased by the University of California and removed the following year to its Berkeley campus.
