Guide to the Steele Family Collection (1851 – 1971) – Scope

View the full guide to this collection

The Steele Family Collection contains research materials and papers, photographs, correspondence, original butter wrappers, and newspaper clippings related to the history of the Steele Family.  The research materials were collected during the 1960s by Catherine Steele and Wilfred H. Steele.  Many are photocopies of documents and information published in other sources that contributed to the completion of their own family history in 1971.  Though the Steele Family lived in New York, Connecticut, and Ohio, much of the information in this collection focuses on the members of the Steele family that resided in California, specifically in Pescadero, San Mateo, and San Luis Obispo Counties.
