Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Includes photographs of the Santa Clara valley, Monterey, and San Francisco's Chinatown. Major subjects depicted are agricultural activities, immigrant laborers of various ethnic groups, the Chinese fishing village in Monterey, domestic and historic architecture (including missions and adobes of Spanish California), gardens and botanical subjects, and children's camps and activities.
Mrs. Hare was born Alice Iola Schnatterly, on December 12, 1859, in New Geneva, Pennsylvania. Born to a large family, she was one of eight children. In 1877 she married James W. Hare. In 1880 the first of the Hares' four sons, John, was born. John would eventually become a photographer and work for several San Francisco newspapers as well as the Chicago Daily Journal. In 1881 the Hare family moved to Carlinville, Illinois, where two more of their sons, James and Ray, were born. In 1895, the Hares moved to Santa Clara, California. Their fourth son, Harry, was born that same year. Shortly thereafter, perhaps encouraged by her son John, Mrs. Hare began to practice photography.
