Robert Allan Jacobs papers, 1890s-1990s, bulk 1909-1983

Series V: Personal

This series includes material that correspond more directly to Jacobs' personal rather than professional life. Included are books and monographs found in Jacobs' office, school yearbooks, a portfolio of watercolors, diplomas, journals, and military ephemera. The series includes photographs of a more personal nature found within the collection. Included within the series are studio portraits-both of Robert Allan Jacobs himself and of his family-and more informal snapshots, especially from Jacobs' vacations and hunting expeditions.
