Series 3
Photographs, 1864-1969
Boxes 14-16; OP18

Scope and Content Note

The series includes photographs of Harris from circa 1864 until the time of his death, his children from their youth to old age, Eatonton, Turnwold and the Wren's Nest, Esther LaRose Harris and the LaRose family, and various friends and associates. A particularly interesting item is daughter Lillian's album of snapshots of the family dating 1897-1904 (the covers of the album have been removed, pages numbered and placed in folders). Snapshots are of family members including Harris, family friends, and the local surroundings. The album shows a young girl's world at the turn of the century as well as several informal shots of her famous father. Other photos are of Harris at home with family and friends, and at work at the Atlanta Constitution or at home. Expansions and renovations of Wren's Nest in the 1880s and 1890s are also pictured.

The oversized illustrations are framed and unframed sketches and paintings by Arthur Burdett Frost, Charlotte Harding, Charles J. Kelley, E. Boyd Smith, Elizabeth Mathews, and two unknown artists. Other illustrations are in Series 1, Subseries 1.2.
