The Henry B. and Raymond W. Fisher Survey Collection consists of approximately 1,700 surveys made by Henry B. Fisher and by his son, Raymond W. Fisher, from the 1890s until the 1960s, primarily in Santa Clara County. The surveys are of private property, both rural and urban, and typically include one or more maps or drawings and pages of calculations and/or written descriptions of property boundaries. Many surveys are plans for subdivisions in Santa Clara County, and the collection also includes many plans for capital improvements such as sewer systems and roads improvements.
