Some material may be copyrighted or restricted. It is the researcher's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other case restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the collections.

Processing Note

Each photographic image has been assigned an Item number. Approximately half of the lantern slides have a label which have "C. Willard Evans, San Francisco" printed on them along with a line to handwrite a title. This label does not necessarily mean that the image was photographed by C. Willard Evans. In some cases, Evans cites the actual photographer on the label and in other cases the photographer inscribed his name on the original image. Only 5 photographs can be confirmed as photographed by Evans; however, additional images in the collection may be also his.
Description Notes: Dates refer to when the original photograph was taken. Most of the slides do not have a date cited, but nearly half of the slides have a handwritten label with a brief title.
The descriptions in this collection guide were compiled using the best available sources of information.

Collection Scope and Content

The C. Willard Evans photograph collection, 1892-1915, (SAFR 23849, P94-038) is comprised mainly of photographs of Alaskan villages, people, and wildlife, primarily in the Pribilof Islands and Aleutian Islands. The collection has been processed to the Item level and is open for use.
Contains photographs of Alaska scenes, 1892-1915. There are 131 unique photographic images in 131 physical forms (lantern slides). Approximately half of the collection is comprised primarily of photographs of Alaskan landscapes, villages, and people (both Alaska Natives and non-natives). Includes views of Bogoslof Island, Shishaldin Volcano and buildings (mostly dwellings and churches) in Akutan, Dutch Harbor, Saint George Island, Saint Paul Island, and Unalaska. There are also a small number of photographs of vessels (including Alaska Native baidaras), plants, maps, and Alaska Native crafts. The remaining half of the collection consists primarily of photographs of fur seals as well as walruses, whales, birds (possibly murres), blue foxes, and reindeer. Some photographs show men killing and skinning fur seals and processing a dead whale.
Some of the photographers have been identified as E. F. Bagger, H. D. Chichester, C. Willard Evans, J. E. Thwaites, and R. E. Hatton; however, most of the photographs do not have an identified photographer. One cartoon drawn by Mervyn D. Silberstein depicts C. Willard Evans traveling in Alaska.

Collection Arrangement

Arranged into two Series: Series 1: Alaskan landscapes, villages, people, and other photographs; Series 2: Alaskan wildlife and hunting activities. Each Series is further arranged into File Units. Prior to processing, the lantern slides were arranged in no discernible order. Sixty-five of the 131 slides had a sticker on which a number was handwritten, and the remaining slides had no number. The numbered slides were not filed in order and they do not form a complete range; they span from 1 to 159, with many gaps between numbers. Because many of the unnumbered slides contain similar content as the numbered slides, the processing archivist decided to arrange the collection by subject matter. See the collection file for a document listing the Items in the order found during initial processing.

Related Materials

The travel case in which the lantern slides were housed at the time of donation as well as a clicker found inside the case were transferred to the objects department for cataloging.
