When Mark Twain visited San Francisco in June 1863, he was hired as the San Francisco Daily Morning Call's Nevada correspondent. The Call published several of his letters from Nevada between August and December 1863. When Twain and his friend Steve Gillis left Virginia City, Nevada and moved to San Francisco on May 29, 1864, Twain was hired as the newspaper's only full-time reporter for four and a half months.

The Call's newspaper office was located 612 Commercial Street. The paper was published six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday. It consisted of a single sheet folded in half to create four printed pages 18 1/2" x 23 1/2." The pages were unnumbered. Price was 12 1/2 cents a week -- a "bit" paper. Circulation was 10,000 daily. Mark Twain was in charge of covering the police departments, the courts, the city Board of Supervisors, the Board of Education, theatres, and any local news and rumors he could come up with to fill the "acreage" of the blank paper each night before his deadline.

Edgar M. Branch has studied Mark Twain's contributions to the Call more than any previous Twain researcher. Branch estimated the Call published approximately 5,400 local news items during Twain's short tenure with the paper. Branch identified 471 articles as Twain's, less than 10% of the total items, and reprinted 206 articles in Clemens of the 'Call'; Mark Twain in San Francisco (University of California Press, 1969). The book is currently out of print. Although the news stories were unsigned, the presumption of Twain's authorship is based on much supporting evidence.

The following list below includes Branch's identifications as well as others that I have added and believe are Twain's based on story construction and relationships to other items on which Twain was reporting. It is safe to speculate that there are many more articles by Twain that were written for the Call that are not listed -- articles that are simple and mundane daily news reports -- often one sentence in length -- that do not have the "snap" that is often an unmistakeable characteristic of Twain's authorship. That spectacular Twain "snap" was often an emotional release fired off amidst the drudgery of a job that Twain himself described as "killingly monotonous and wearisome . . . fearful drudgery, soulless drudgery, and almost destitute of interest." (Twain's reminiscences of his work on the Call appear in Mark Twain in Eruption, p. 254-260.)

This collection should not be considered comprehensive or infallible. The text of all articles believed to be Twain's are not currently available, but their titles are included in the index below. Researchers who have located evidence of Twain's authorship of additional articles are invited to contact me.
