Language of Materials



With the exception of two photographs, the nineteen photographs herein depict scenes associated with the ST. MARYS in 1903. The two exceptions are those depicting alumni reunion scenes. One photograph as identified as being the Alumni Association Dinner - NY Yacht Club, 1945, the other identified as ST. MARY'S Reunion, Tues. Nov. 19, 1946. Nine individuals are depicted in each photograph, presumably all graduates from the ST. MARY'S. Photographs range in size from about 5x5" to about 11x14" with most falling into the smaller size range. Most are somewhat discolored orfaded. Apparently all were taken in 1903 or very shortly before or after, and essentially depict scenes either on board the ST. MARYS, especially during its cruise to Europe or shortly before. There are also some group pictures of the students, one of which was taken in Paris on July 7, 1902. Also included is a photographic print of the American Liner PHILADELPHIA. Some photographs are identified, most are not, but, again, depict some of the students. Also as part of this Series, there are additionally three prints made in 1956 from the originals, these identified as depicting Hendrickson, Frank Thompson, John S. Baylis, and Miss Omans, a teacher. Accompanying these prints is a letter to Hendrickson from John Baylis, dated Oct. 14, 1956 returning photos borrowed by him "to get enlargements".
