    Provenance

    This collection was formed by Santa Barbara photographer Joel Conway (1915-2004). At least one of the photographs was once owned by John C. Muzzall (1914-2009) of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

    Biographical Note

    The Santa Barbara photography firm of Hayward & Muzzall was composed of photographers E. J. Hayward (1837-1911) and Henry W. Muzzall (1844-1924). Hayward and Muzzall operated as a partnership from around 1874 to 1883 and primarily produced stereoviews, portraits, and landscapes of Santa Barbara, California, and the vicinity.
    Edwin J. Hayward was born in Canada in 1837 and later lived in Chicago, Illinois, before moving to Santa Barbara around 1872. Henry Woolven Muzzall was born in Indiana and later lived in Michigan before moving to Santa Barbara in the early 1870s, where he opened a photography studio.
