The Birkholm family photographs, circa 1903-1913, (SAFR 24261, P95-033) are comprised mainly of copy negatives and contact
sheets from photographs of Captain Frederik Birkholm's family and crew members aboard GEORGE E. BILLINGS (built 1903; schooner,
5m) and H.K. HALL (built 1902; schooner, 5m). The collection has been processed to the Collection level and is open for use.
Captain Frederik S. Birkholm (1868-1954) was the master of WINSLOW (built 1899; schooner, 4m) and GEORGE E. BILLINGS (built
1903; schooner, 5m). He may have also captained the schooners F.S. REDFIELD and LOTTIE CARSON. In 1913, Birkholm returned
to Denmark where he eventually became involved in the banking industry. He had three sons, Winslow (1904-1978), Sidney (1911-1992),
and Carl (1914-1998), as well as a daughter.
