Gov. Low's Residence, Minister to China
Cal531. Stereoview titled in manuscript on verso “Our New Minister to China,” and Ex. Gov. Low’s Residence, Harrison St.”Frederick Low as Governor of California before becoming minister to China. Born in Frankfort (now Winterport, Maine) in 1828, Low attended the Hampden Academy in Hampden, Maine. Low moved to California, entering the shipping business in San Francisco in 1849. Low became a banker in Marysville, California from 1854 from 1861. Low presented credentials as a Republican Member-elect to the 37th Congress but was not permitted to take his seat until a special act of Congress was passed. He served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from June 3, 1862 to March 3, 1863. Low was appointed in 1863 as collector of the Port of San Francisco prior to becoming governor of California from December 10, 1863 to December 5, 1867. He was the second California governor to live in the Stanford Mansion as the official residence and office until the opening of the California State Capitol building in 1869. Low was California’s last Civil War governor. Hallmarks of his administration were the establishment of Yosemite National Park and University of California. Low was considered, father of the University of California, however, his successor, Henry H. Haight signed March 23, 1868, the Charter of the University. Low served as United States Minister to China from 1869 to 1874. He died in San Francisco on July 21, 1894. He is buried in the Cypress Lawn Memorial Park in Colma.When I purchased this image I was told that Gary Kurtz, retired from the California State Library ID’ed this image as by William Shew. If this is correct, it would be one of only a few stereoviews issued by Shew. VG. $250
