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.
