Family photographs

Object Details

Scope and Contents
This series consists of 48 photographs circa 1880–circa 1990, arranged alphabetically by family name and then by event. Photographs depict members of the Bailey, Dade, Droughn, Glascow, Hasbrouck, Jenkins, Murphy, Plummer, and Ricker families and are primarily black-and-white, with two hand-tinted prints and two in color. Family members are shown in their daily life, at family reunions, in posed portraits, and at formal events. Five photographs depict a 1946 IBPOE (Improved Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks) event at which Robert Francis Plummer and Florence Ellen Glascow Plummer were honored. This series also contains a photograph of a Christmas event at Kenilworth & Carver Elementary Schools, NE.
