Series 8
Photographs, 1860-1943
Boxes 33-35; OP 5-20

Scope and Content Note

Series 8 contains photographs that have to do with several of the series. It holds snapshots and portrait photographs of some of Harrison's immediate family, including her parents, some of her siblings and their children, and other more distant relatives. Some of the items are not identified. One folder of older photographs includes tintypes, cartes-de-viste, cabinet photos and a collodio-chloride print taken during the late 19th century.

Emily Harrison collected photographs and postcards during her various tours including travels in California, North Carolina and Greece. An extensive collection of photographs, engravings, and sketches about Czechoslovakia fill Box 37.

Aspects of Emily Harrison's professional activities are also represented in the photographic series. The portrait photographs of professional educators who attended a 1924 National Education Association meeting in Washington, D.C., are located in Box 35, folder 11. Photographs showing the Out-of-Door School and the Tallulah Falls School are located in Box 36. The Tallulah Falls pictures feature life in the North Georgia mountains as well as showing scenes of the school and its students.

Many items pertain to Fernbank Forest, the Harrison family home on the Fernbank property, and some of the groups that used Fernbank during the 1930s while Harrison worked to keep the estate intact. [See Series 2, Correspondence, Series 4, European Travel, and Series 5, Education, for additional information about Harrison's travels and her involvement with progressive education.]
