    Administrative Information

    Acquisition Information

    The James Earl Wood Collection of Photographs Relating to Filipinos in California was received with Wood's collection of research materials on Filipinos in California, BANC MSS C-R 4. That collection was probably received by the library in 1945 through Paul S. Taylor.

    Scope and Content

    This collection of 57 photographs and 5 post cards was taken or acquired by James Earl Wood ca. 1929-1934 as part of his research for his master's thesis. The library does not hold a copy of the thesis. The collection includes photographs of buildings in Susanville, California; Filipino laborers; Filipinos and buildings, probably in Sacramento, California; workers' camps, and some unidentified portraits and group photos. Also included are postcards of lumber operations of the Red River Lumber Company in Susanville and Westwood, California, and one postcard of a group baptism, dated May 1924, and taken at Zamboangita, The Philippines.
    The photographs are undated, and, except for the first group, uncaptioned. The present groupings have been established based on the developer's number on the verso of the prints. Groups of photographs that were developed at the same time have been kept together with the assumption that they were taken at the same time. This system does not apply to all of the photographs in the collection, since many do not bear numbers, especially those after number 44.
