"Big Four"

From: "Nora Zelevansky"

I'm researching "The Associates" or "Big Four" for an article. I'm trying to find out information on Mark Hopkin's estate in Nob Hill (before it was destroyed, of course). I'd love to find out architectural/decor details about the original mansion. Does anyone know where to find that information?

Also, does anyone know where to find the value of Leland Stanford, Mark Hopkins, and Charles (and E.B.) Crocker's estates at the time of their respective deaths? If anyone has information, I'd love the help.
