Series 1:  Postcards. 1906-1969.

Physical Description: 8 shoeboxes.

Scope and Contents note

These postcards, forming the bulk of the collection, are arranged geographically by region, then by country, and within each country alphabetically by locality. Most countries also include a number of postcards filed under "folk costumes and customs". The materials for Europe are extensive, in particular for England, France, Italy, and Spain. Postcards for London and Paris are arranged as "general" postcards, followed by significant buildings, monuments, and streets. The number of postcards for North Africa and the Middle East is considerably smaller. The postcards for France and Germany in particular document the condition of the localities pictured prior to the devastation of World War II; those for Palestine document the country before the destruction caused during and after the formation of the State of Israel. The number of postcards for the United States is quite small, and relates primarily to national parks in the western states. The postcards for Idaho are made from personal photographs and document a trip undertaken (probably by Wilfred Herman) in 1925; commercially produced postcards for the Columbia River Highway in Oregon have similar markings. One-half an archival "shoebox" contains postcards arranged alphabetically by person. The people represented are primarily artists, although a significant number of postcards also portray and document the Bonaparte family, the life of Dante Alighieri, and the life of, and characters created by, Charles Dickens. An additional one-half shoebox contains postcards arranged alphabetically by subject, including art that could not be assigned to a specific artist, musical composers, depictions of the character of Don Quixote, characters from 16th-century British history, Popes, members of various European ruling families, and World War I monuments in France.
