5.2: Lejwa Personal Photographs , circa 1920s-1994

This subseries contains snapshots, negatives, and slides of artwork, family, friends, and Madeleine Lejwa's travels in the 1980s and 1990s. Eight photo albums include six albums of photos from Madeleine Lejwa's travels in the late 1970s-early 1990s, one album of photos of china and silverware, and an album of photos of the townhouse at 9 East 88th Street. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject, then by last name or subject. Photographs and negatives are filed together; however, slides and photo albums are separated and located at the end of the subseries. This subseries is from the 2005 collection addition and is minimally processed.
