Loose photographs

Identifier: Series I

The collection is comprised of photo albums, loose photos and slides documenting the recreation and travel of the three sisters between the years 1900-1998. Their interests in sailing, travel, archeology and music are represented through the collection of pictures. Also included, are pictures from the girls' summer camp that they went to during the 1920's and 1930's. Travel journal entries of boating trips are compiled in Series I, which relate to slides in Series III.

Each album page was numbered. If any photo fell loose while numbering it was recorded by the number of the page. All other loose photographs were housed in separate folders. All albums that could be disbound were disbound. One oversized album, "Josephine: 'The famous hitch to Buffalo,'" (#2.3) was photocopied and the originals shelved separately.

Photo albums are named according to information from the original cover or information from the first page of the album. If possible, owner or creator of album is noted.
