Miller, early Stockton wagon maker. Others come from albums formerly belonging to Mrs. J. S. McCauley of Angels Camp (Calif.) and to the Cuthbertson family and Janice Huntoon of Stockton. Photographs include portraits of local politicians, manufacturers, teachers, hotel keepers and others taken by best known 19th century local photographers, including B. P.
