Family photograph album

 File — Box: 1

Scope and Contents

48 leaves. Black covers with bound black paper leaves. Leaves 28 through 46 are empty of photos. Contains 150 black-and-white photographs, most taped to the leaves, but many are loose. There are virtually no captions for any of the photographs, however some have been written on with pen. One photo of a baby is marked “Anna E. Crossley,” another “Lois Maria.” Many have been removed. 5 photos are removed but kept in the book. 1 clipping: obituary for George S. Stoup. Inclusive dates are unknown, though two of the loose photos are stamped “1928.” Subjects seem to be limited to Stoup’s family life: portraits, camping and hiking trips, horseback riding, scenery, houses.


  • circa 1917-1920
