Scope and Content Note

This series consists of amateur snapshots and professional photographs of Robert W.

The photographs also document his involvement with The Coca-Cola Company and other businesses. While many of the photographs show Woodruff as a businessman or a philanthropist, the photographs taken at Ichauway capture Woodruff’s personal life.
