Scope and Content Note

The series consists of photographs of events, people and performances including marches, film festivals, special events, and aspects of Ranson's everyday life. Many of the events are related to the SAME arts organization, of which Ranson served as executive director. There are a number of photographs of unidentified events, most of which appear to be dinners and receptions. There are headshots of actors as well as photographs of people that Ranson knew or worked with. Of special note are photographs of Ranson's son, Charles Engle, and his family. There are also some photographs that appear to depict people in the early 1900s. Also included are cast photographs and still photographs of play performances. The plays depicted in these photographs include plays written by Ranson along with plays written by other people that Ranson either acted in or directed. Negatives and slides are included and many duplicate the photographs.
