Series V: Photographs and Images, circa 1870s-1990s, undated

Included in this series are individual photographs, negatives and albums of the creators of this collection, their ancestors, their descendants, their properties, and their friends and associates. Material is arranged alphabetically.


Subseries V.1: Albums, circa late, 1800s-1983

The albums, some of which were disbound due to preservation concerns, range from a collection of photographs of the Pearsons or Plimpton family dating from the late 1800s to a travel album dated 1982-1983. Included here are albums featuring Francis Plimpton from his childhood through his professional life as an attorney, and at the United Nations. The earliest travel albums are collections of photographs of a trip to Constantinople (1914) and to China (1920). Later photo albums contain pictures of Pauline, Francis, their family and friends on their travels around the world.
