Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of family memorabilia including postcards, photographs, and letters documenting the Dutra-Lanthier family's Catholic faith and their historical connections with the Catholic community in San Francisco and the Bay Area during the early 20th century. The collection features an album of pre-assembled items including photograph scrapbook pages, letters, and family history information compiled by the donor. Photographs are of members of the Lanthier family at home, on First Holy Communion and Confirmation days, attending Catholic school, and entering religious life. The collection also includes a selection of transcribed letters (bulk dates, 1932-1966) written between Evelyn Lanthier to her sister, Sister Mary Agnes Lantheir, a Catholic religious sister of the Mission San Jose Dominican community. Their correspondence discusses among other things, their Catholic faith, experience of living vowed religious life, and Evelyn's work as a nurse during WWII.
