    Scope and Content of Collection

    A photograph album with 109 b/w prints, most with captions in English, apparently compiled by an American sailor attached to the USS Wright on its visits to Cuba and Haiti during the late 1920s. Includes a number of photos of the Wright, its planes, and its officers and crew, as well as views of other naval vessels, some taken from the air. A few photos show scenes at Guantanamo Bay (including one of a baseball game). 29 photos of Santa Cruz, Cuba and 8 in Haiti, including a number of buildings and street scenes. Also, a number of smaller photos depicting more personal family groupings, apparently taken in the U.S. and added to the album later.
