The collection contains numerous color and black and white photos of Jarmuth’s family, friends and various travels spanning the course of over 50 years, as well as miscellaneous business cards and a travel diary kept by Jarmuth during a 1937 trip from England to Egypt in which she visited Cairo and Alexandria.
