Table of contents What's This?
The Marian Osgood Hooker Collection consists of two albums dating from 1894 to 1896, which document Marian's growing interest in photography while a student at the Marlborough School for Girls. Both albums include images of Marian's classmates, friends, and family.
Marian Osgood Hooker was born in 1875 in San Francisco, California to Katherine Putnam Hooker and John Daggett Hooker. Her father was a wealthy businessman connected to the hardware industry and iron works. He served as vice president of Baker Iron Works, and was president of Western Union Oil Company for a time. In 1886, Hooker moved his family from San Francisco to Los Angeles in order to pursue business opportunities there. In Los Angeles, the Hooker home entertained prominent guests, such as John Muir the conservationist, George Hale the astronomer, artists, and other intellectual figures.
