Gift; of the Seismological Society of America; 2007.
From 2006 letter by Fred Followill, previous owner, to officers of the Seismological Society of America: Dr. John Gray Douglas was Chairman of the Department of Geological Engineering at the University of Mississippi when he hired me in 1962 to join the faculty there. John's wife, Vi, was the niece of Wm. Marshall. Marshall was on President Theodore Roosevelt's White House staff. A photograph album had been prepared and presented to President Roosevelt during his visit to San Francisco to inspect the damage following the 1906 earthquake and fire. President Roosevelt presented this photograph album to Wm. Marshall upon his departure from the White House. Later, as a wedding present, Marshall presented this album to his niece and her husband, John. After John Douglas' death in 1975, Vi Douglas presented me with this album.
