View the full guide to this collection

This collection contains hotel registers for the St. George Hotel. Some of these registers are water damaged and in poor condition. The other registers are in excellent condition. The registers document guests visiting the hotel at various times in its history from 1899 to 1926. Some of the interesting entries include various baseball clubs that came to Santa Cruz to play the local team, movie studios, plus many other people from across the state or country. There are also other registers covering the period from 1969 to 1973. In addition there are business records from the 1970s, and ephemera most likely from the same timeframe. There is also a set of records not related to the St. George Hotel, primarily depositions for cases against the Portland Cement Company.
