Series 6
Photographs, circa 1902-1979
Boxes 76-77, OP 1, 3-5

Scope and Content Note

Photographs of Rich as a young boy, a businessman, a family man, a community leader, and a civilian aide to the Secretary of the Army dominate the series. Other photographs are of members of the Rich family, Rich's executive officers and directors, and scenes of the store in both modern and older, historic times. Childhood and portrait photographs of Rich from the early l900's to 1975 show his maturing from a chubby young boy to a youthful merchant to an elderly leader of one of the south's major department store chains. Other photos of Rich picture him receiving awards at parties, dinners and meetings, attending Emory University functions and store ceremonies, and relaxing with his family. Snapshots of Brazil in 1944 are among the miscellaneous photographs completing this series.

Arrangement Note

Arrangement is largely by subject and a few of the photos have been left framed.
