Physical Description: 1 box

Series Scope and Content Summary

This local family collection is a good example of the ordinary experiences of a family during World War II. This series consists of hand-written and typed copies of creative writings by Geraldine McGrady Jones, representing her reflections on domestic life, children, and the loss of her two sons in World War II. Part of this collection includes digital images that were produced from the original family photographic album, which the family maintains. The album documents the history of the family from 1850 through the 1940s. As part of the original gift, daughters Geraldine (Gerri) Peters and Betty Emrett recorded a brief narrative of their personal experiences growing-up in Los Gatos. The audio file and transcriptsincluded in this series provide an overview of their early family life.
