    Acquisition Information

    The additions to the collection were a gift of Marguerite P. Keyes in June 1978.

    Scope and Content

    A collection of pictures removed from the Hooker Family Papers, these are mainly snapshots ranging in date from 1892 to 1915, although some are later. Many of the pictures are viewing copies prepared from the original glass negatives, or from nitrate negatives which have been copied and subsequently discarded. A portion of the collection was acquired in 1969 and the rest were acquired in 1976; these two files have been integrated to form the present collection.
