Bancroft, Hubed Howe, historian (May 51 1832-March 21 1918). Bom at
Granville, Ohio, he worked at a relative's bookstore at Buffalo, New
York, from 1848 until 1852, when he went to Califomia. He established
a bookselling and publishing business at San Francisco, which came to
be called The History Company, Publishers, prospered, and soon
commenced gathering materials for his multi-volume history of the
West,.which became the History of the Pacific States ot North America,
published in 34 volumes between 1885 and 1890, with five volumes of
additional material; the entire 39 volumes were also issued under the
title The Works ot Hubert Howe Bancroft. Although the issues were
under Bancroft"s name, he wrote but four volumes, editing much of
the remainder. The others were written by as able a
researcher-historian-writer body as was ever assembled, none of whom
was credited in the Published works. "Although criticised for
his: 'history factory,' Bancroft soon was credits with making a great
contribution to American historiography." His unrivaled
collection of 60,000 historical manuscripts, personal narratives,
volumes and biographies was obtained in 1905 by the University of
California at Berkeley where it is housed, still growing, in the
Bancroft Library. "His broad approach to historical writing has
rarely been equalled, and his histories were, in the main,
reliable." The series, with the dates of publication of the final
volumes: Northwest Coast, 2 vols. (1884); Alaska (1886); Native Races,
5 vols. (1886); British Columbia (1887); Central America, 3 vols.
