Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains the papers of English art historian Katharine Ada Esdaile (1881-1950). Much of the collection relates to her research of British monumental sculpture. Notably the collection includes more than 600 chiefly pre-World War II visitor booklets and pamphlets produced locally by British churches and approximately 3500 photographs taken or collected by Esdaile of sculpture, often funerary monuments in English churches.
British art historian Katharine Ada Esdaile (née McDowall) was born in Sussex, England, on April 23, 1881, to Andrew McDowall and Ada Benson.
