Found in 18 Collections and/or Records:
The collection contains real photo postcards, commercial postcards, photographs, pamphlets and ephemera related to people with disabilities, mostly from the United States, collected by Professor Robert Bogdan, a pioneer in the teaching of disability studies.
Family portrait of an unidentified man, woman, their five children, and a small dog. The family is arranged in the photographer's studio with mother and father seated at right and left, a young girl standing between them, and a small black dog on a pedestal in front. The family is dressed in what appear to be their best clothes, and the father wears a military jacket of some sort.
Photograph preserved in envelope which reads, on inside of the flap, "Hetty Mitchell. June 3, 1889." Presumably, this portrait depicts Hetty. It shows a young woman in her 20s or 30s, wearing a domestic servant's uniform.
The collection contains correspondence, personal and family papers, and financial records that document the life, interests, and work of the American philanthropist Annie Burr Auchincloss Lewis (1902-1959).
The collection comprises 147 photographs from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with representative images of Great Britain, South Africa, New Zealand, Madeira, East Asia, and other locations (many unidentified).
Signed on reverse, "Maude. Feb'y 1891." Image shows Maude looking straight at the camera, wearing a heavy coat and a feather-trimmed hat. She wears a brooch at her neck, but no other jewelry.
Portrait of Maude Douglas is signed on reverse: "With Love from Maude/ D'cr [December] 9th 96." Image shows Maude looking straight at the camera, with curly bangs above her forehead. She wears a simple high-necked gingham or checked blouse, pinned at the neck with a small brooch.
Print is signed on back, "To Bertie with much love from Maudie." Image is of Maude standing with arms clasped behind her head. She wears a loosely-fitting, draped gown suggestive of ancient Greek or Roman style. She has a solid metallic bracelet on her right arm, and she wears heavy makeup.
Maude is shown here wearing a regal looking costume, consisting of a cap with pheasant feathers, a fur-trimmed striped bodice with dark fabric bib and cuffed sleeves (cuffs are a pale velvety material, with frilly wrists), a cape decorated with spangles, tasseled epaulets, thick black tights and low heeled black shoes. She is wearing heavy makeup, with her eyes lined and lips rouged. The print is signed, "With love from Maudie/ Jan 29th 92."
This image and the profile image in the same group appear to have been taken at the same time, as part of a series. The print is dated "April 1892" in graphite on reverse. Maude is shown here in a loose and diaphanous white gown, with open sleeves that drape over her shoulders. Tassels adorn the dress at the arms and one at the waist. She wears no jewelry and her hair is done in a soft, natural, style.
Studio photograph of an unidentified sitter. The back of the frame has the printed label of Joseph Wilson, picture frame maker at London.
An unidentified female performer, likely from London, is pictured in this print. She stands with hands at her hips, wearing a revealing costume composed of a frilled eyelet blouse with long full sleeves, a vest and shorts of a pale color with dark edging, pale tights, and white shoes.
Print shows an unidentified mother and child in a garden setting. The mother, seated on an upholstered chair, is dressed in a pale or white gown with an embroidered square neck and a lace collar. She holds open a book and appears to be reading to a young girl standing next to her.
Portrait of three young men, all dressed in suits. They pose together on a couch, a chair, and a table in what appears to be the photographer's studio. There is no indication of the identity of the three men or the occasion of this portrait. This photograph was found with other photographs and envelopes bearing a Cambridge University (St. John's College) address, so it is possible that the three men are students at the University, possibly at St. John's College.
