Cover thumbnail for Crandall (Fred W.) Photographs Crandall (Fred W.) Photographs

Fred Warren Crandall was born to George Washington Crandall and Emily (Chaffee) Crandall on July 28, 1858 in Herrick, Pennsylvania. One of five children, Fred was raised a farmer’s son; however, from an early age, he aspired to join the clergy, and in the mid-1870s traveled to Irvington, California to study theology. Unfortunately, the misfortune of ill health forced him to reconsider his theological aspirations. After spending a brief time as an educator in Nebraska and Missouri from 1878 to 1883, Crandall moved to California to pursue a vocation in the ranching business. The Fred W. Crandall Photographs collection consists of twenty-nine images that chronicle approximately thirty years of Northern California agricultural history, from approximately 1883 to 1911. It includes photos of the Fred W. Crandall and William T. Rice Fruit Drying establishment in Los Gatos and the Sorosis Fruit farm in Saratoga, as well as several photographs depicting turn-of-the-century life in Los Gatos.
