Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Harry M. Warner scrapbooks span the years 1907-1938 and encompass 15 linear feet. The scrapbooks were received as loose leaves as they had been dismantled prior to donation. There are more than 100 individual pages. Largely comprised of photographs, many inscribed, there are also clippings and some ephemera. The pages have been arranged into thematically-appropriate groups and assigned consecutive numbers. Additional scrapbooks document the 1927 death of Samuel L. Warner and a 1937 visit to Europe by Mr. and Mrs. Harry M. Warner. There is also a small amount of material related to the 1934 death and memorial service of Mrs. Pearl Leah Warner (Mrs. Benjamin Warner, mother of the Warner Bros.).
Harry Morris Warner was a Polish-born American studio executive active in film from 1903 to 1958.

His brothers were Albert, Sam, and Jack Warner.
