Table of contents What's This?
The Ida Hill Photograph Collection includes 29 photographs of various members of the Hill and Robinson families, group photographs of African American masons, and Dicy Robinson’s memorial card. A bulk of the collection are family photographs of William and Ida Hill and their children William Hill Jr., Alfred Hill, and Beverly Hill in Oakland and Alameda, California. The collection also includes a cabinet card taken in New Orleans, Louisiana, most likely of Ida Robinson Hill’s father sometime in the 1860s and a group photograph of the Robinson family taken in front of their home in the 1890s. The collection includes ten group photographs of various African American masonic groups in California in the 1930-1950s.
