The Bancroft Library
The Bancroft Library holds a painted portrait of José Joaquín Estudillo (BANC PIC 1963.032), however, its questionable quality and unknown date make it difficult to confirm the identity of the daguerreotype subject through comparison. Identified by collector Zelda Mackay as "Don José Estudillo. Founder of San Leandro." She must refer to José Joaquín Estudillo (1798-1852) of Rancho San Leandro. While the appearance of this image and mat suggests a slightly later date (ca. 1854-1858), if the identification is correct it must date from 1851 (photographer William Shew's arrival in California) or 1852 (the last year of Estudillo's life.) <physfacet label="Image Package Note">Original component parts: plate, mat, cover glass, preserver.
