These include manuscripts, scrapbooks, clippings, notes, newspaper indexes (for late 19th Century), photographs, and ephemera.

The collection's strengths include Ferndale and southwest Humboldt County, Bigfoot, and Seth Kinman materials. The extensive photograph collection covers the entire region from the 1870s to the 1970s. The collection provides insight into Genzoli's published works as the collection contains background information he used for his several publications.

Acquisition Information

This collection was purchased from Betty Genzoli, widow of Andrew Genzoli, by Humboldt State University Library in 1985 with the generous financial assistance from the Bertha Russ Lytel Foundation of Ferndale, California.

Biographical Information

Andrew Genzoli, 1914-1984, started his career as a journalist in the early 1930s while still a student at Ferndale High School when he served as correspondent for the Humboldt Times and then later as a staff reporter. By 1940 he had purchased the Saratoga Sentinel which he operated until he joined the U.S. Army in 1941. He served as a staff correspondent and press liaison for General McArthur in the South Pacific. After WWII he returned to Ferndale and became a reporter for the Humboldt Standard. He retired from the Times Standard in 1979. Mr. Genzoli used feature articles and his regular columns (RFD, Redwood Country, and Lines From The Times) to present local history facts and lore to the paper’s readers. He was an active member of regional and local historical organizations including serving as editor of the Humboldt Historian for many years and being appointed to the California State Historical Landmarks Advisory Board. He published several books, among them: Redwood Country (1973), Eel River Country (1973); the series of books that he co-authored with Wallace E. Martin between 1961 and 1972; the Humboldtiana series (1962-1971); and Frontier Moments from the Humboldt Historian (1982).

Scope and Content of the Collection

The collection consists of historical materials from all aspects of Genzoli’s career and volunteer activities. These include professional writings, manuscripts, scrapbooks, clippings, students’ papers, notes and newspaper indexes, ledger books and photographs pertaining to all aspects of Northwestern California history, especially Humboldt County. The unpublished materials shed considerable light in the early history of the area. The photographs in the collection are extensive and cover the northern California area from 1870s to the 1970s.

Container List

  • Series: Information Files - 11 file cabinet drawers

    File Heading List
  • The Information Files cover all Northwestern California subjects and geographic areas. Areas of strength are reflected in the subjects of Genzoli’s writings, particularly his published books. The files are available in the Humboldt Room by appointment. These files are not fully processed and researchers can expect to find misfiles and other anomalies.

    Two 3-ring binders and a folder titled “Originals” have been placed at the end of the Information Files, after Z, in the last drawer. The binders contain notes, transcribed passages (some lengthy), ephemera, clippings, etc. that Genzoli used in his research and writing efforts. His organizational strategy is not apparent. Contents cover the full spectrum of Humboldt history and the source of the information is usually apparent. The folder titled “Original Copy” contains the materials Genzoli used as handouts and for lectures for his Eureka Adult School and College of the Redwoods classes.

  • Series: Photographs - 8 file cabinet drawers

    Photograph Headings List
  • The Photographs cover the entire northwestern California region but are particularly rich for the Ferndale, Fortuna, Eel River, and Mattole River areas. The photos are available by appointment in the Humboldt Room. In 2008 the files titled "Indians" and "Hoopa Valley" and "Klamath River" were selected for a special processing project and are described below. The rest of the photographs have not been processed or cataloged and researchers can expect to find misfiles and other anomalies.

    During Fall 2008-Spring 2009 a student intern processed and cataloged about 225 images from the "Indians" and "Hoopa Valley" and "Klamath River" folders. They are now numbered: 1999.07.2899 - 1999.07.3124, and are available in the Humboldt Room in the HCC Photograph Collection. Catalog information about them is in the HCC Photograph Collections Database. About 30 images were not cataloged because they are outside the northwest California region; they remain with the other unprocessed photographs. As the initial review progressed it was apparent that images from the same batch or event were separated and in different files. The images were reorganized and fortunately additional information about many of the images was located in the Information Files portion of the Genzoli Collection. These files had titles similar to the photo file titles. Viola Risling Ryerson and Judy Risling helped identify some of the persons and events in the images. A large batch of the images (1999.07.2993 - 1999.07.3043), mostly of the Hoopa school and of school activities, matched up with a manuscript focusing on the life of William (Billy) E. Beckwith which was found in the Information Files filed under "Spencer". It was probably written by Dorcus J. Spencer as part of her early 20th Century work with the Women's Board of Home Missions of the Presbyterian Church. Negatives without accompanying prints were scanned. Also scanned were images selected for possible exhibit, because they are associated with The Land of the Grasshopper Song (Arnold and Reed), or with the Spencer manuscript described above. About 95 were scanned. Digital files of these are available online via the Humboldt Room Photograph Collections Database. Printouts of these images are also available in the HCC Photograph Collection. The original negatives and photograph prints of the scanned images have been "retired" to storage for safekeeping.

  • Series: Newspaper Indexes - Boxes 1-3

    • Subseries: Index to selected topics in local newspapers
      This 3500 (approx.) card index primarily covers the Humboldt Times circa 1854-1914. The index is in four card (5"x7") file boxes. This is not a complete index to the Humboldt Times or other newspaper. Some of the index cards contain lengthy quotes from the articles referenced, others only a few words plus the date and page of the article. The file is particularly strong in maritime matters and most of these entries appear in Wallace E. Martin's Sail and Steam on the Northern California Coast (VK24.C2 M37) HCC. In the 1980s Library staff reorganized the arrangement of the cards for more standard subject access. The new subject heading was written in pencil in the upper left corner of the card.
    • Subseries: Newspaper clippings scrapbooks
      Eight scrapbooks with an accompanying index in two card 5"x7" file boxes. Genzoli authored many of the articles in these scrapbooks. Topics relate to northwestern California.
  • Series: Seth Kinman Materials

    Genzoli accumulated numerous manuscripts and photographs pertaining to Seth Kinman, a well known Humboldt County pioneer, including copies of the unpublished memoirs dictated by Kinman in 1876 to H. Neibur. These copies were created circa 1920s by George Richmond from the original manuscript. A photocopy of one of these manuscripts is in the Humboldt Room (F868.K56 A3 1876). Other files include correspondence between Genzoli and other Kinman researchers, most notably George Richmond and Marshall Anspach. The correspondence received from Richmond and Anspach demonstrates the strong interests all three men had in further publishing about Kinman. Included is Genzoli's own notebook on Kinman, as well as photographs of, and related to, Kinman. In 2002 Rob Roberts (a researcher) made notes about the manuscripts and how they relate to each other; these useful notes are in Folder 22.

    Agriculture and redwoods related publications are particularly strong areas. A wide assortment of subjects and organizations are represented in publications and manuscript materials in this series.
