Led by William T. Bishop (1862-1936), Bishop and Company began producing cookies and crackers in Los Angeles, CA, in 1887, and developed one of the most diverse product lines of any food manufacturing concern in the US, making jellies, canned goods, candied fruit, baked goods and chocolate. At its height, Bishop was one of the largest food manufacturers in the U.S., operating multiple plants in Los Angeles and San Diego, CA, and offices in New York, NY, San Francisco, CA, and Seattle, WA. The National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) purchased Bishop and Company in 11/1929 following the collapse of the stock market on 10/29/1929.

Bishop and Company put out baseball cards of Pacific Coast League players in 1910-1911; the cards, now extremely collectible, accompanied the company's products.
