6.1: Family Photographs, circa 1890-1905

The Ivins Family photographs represent many processes from tintypes to silver gelatin prints. A number were taken by accomplished amateur photographer Emma Yard Ivins of her children, circa 1890-1905; a few of her children are purported to be the work of Gertrude Kasebier (possibly an acquaintance of Emma Yard Ivins?).
Family photographs folders are labelled with the name of an individual or family, and arranged alphabetically; within each folder, photographs are arranged in rough chronological order. Portraits of individuals are filed by name and group shots are filed by the name of the family; childhood pictures are filed under the parents' family. (For example, pictures of Emma Yard Ivins as a child are filed under the name Yard and any group shots she appears in will be found under the name James S. and Adaline Swift Yard Family; group shots of her after marriage are included with the pictures of the William M. Jr. and Emma Yard Ivins Family).
Photographs of William M. Ivins, Jr., and the Florence Wyman family include their New York City apartment, summer house in Westport, Conn., and their Woodbury, Conn. home in addition to photographs of them with friends Bryson Burroughs, Naum Gabo, Walter Hauser, A. Hyatt Mayor, Peyton Rous, Rudolph Ruzicka, Mahonri Young, and unidentified.
