    Scope and Content of Collection

    Photo album with 252 b/w photos, mainly 1912-1916, most with fine detail, of H. A. Walter and family, mainly in India and Kashmir. Walker, who was from Connecticut, apparently was one of a number of YMCA missionary-like foreign work secretaries sent abroad in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to organize YMCAs that eventually were placed under local control. Many of the photos in the album are of the family, especially the children, but many also contain local scenes and people, especially around Srinigar and Lahore. There also are numerous photos of YMCA gatherings and groups, students and schools, as well as travels, including visits to the Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri.
