9.1: Personal Photographs, circa 1860-1963

Found in this subseries are personal photographs and portraits of George Grey Barnard, alone and with others, as well as photographs of family, friends, and family residences. Photographs of George Grey Barnard include a vintage carte-de-visite sized print of the artist as a young child; cabinet cards; portraits by studio photographer George Cox, among other studio portrait photographs; and portraits by well-known photographers Carl van Vechten and Doris Ullman. There are several vintage photographs of Barnard with others, most notably a photograph of Barnard and his father in front of portions of the cloister of Saint-Michel-de-Cuxa, set up outside his "museum" the "Old Cloisters." Additional photographs of Barnard with others can be found in the Studio Photographs subseries.
Family and friends recorded in personal photographs include Martha Grubb Barnard (mother), Joseph Barnard (father), grandparents, Edna Monroe (wife), Evan (brother), and Monroe (son). Scattered within the "Miscellaneous Family" folder are unidentified photographs; these were transfered from a folder of the same name and it is assumed that those depicted are related to Barnard, or perhaps close family friends.
Finally, there is a folder of snapshots of the dedication ceremony of his statue of Lincoln in Cincinnati, Ohio. Although a few of the photographs are inscribed with a date that appears to be "1915" the actual date of the ceremony was March 31, 1917.
Folders are grouped together by subject.
