Series XIII - Photographs, 1890-circa 1960

Arrangement

This series consists primarily of photographs, along with a few photomechanical reproductions clipped from books or annual reports. The series is divided into 6 subseries, as follows:

XIII.1 - Officers, Administrators and Trustees, circa 1895-circa early 1960s

XIII.2 - City Facilities: Lodging Houses, Industrial Schools, Children's Clubs, Programs and Services, and Special Events, circa 1904-circa 1955 (bulk 1908-1945)

XIII.3 - Country Facilities: Farm Schools, Camps and Convalescent Facilities, circa 1908-1945

XIII.4 - Children, Streets and Tenements, circa 1908-1932

XIII.5 - The Emigration/Placing-Out Program: Company Photographs, Duplicates of Photographs in Case Files, and Photos of Unidentified Children, 1890-circa 1920s

XIII.6 - Other Albums and Photographs, circa 1900-circa 1944

Subseries 1-3 are arranged alphabetically by individual or facility, and then in many cases further subdivided by photographer, then arranged numerically by photograph number. Subseries 4 is arranged chronologically by photographer. Subseries 5 is arranged chronologically. Subseries 6 is arranged by material type.

Scope and Contents

Subseries 1-5 contain prints and tintypes. Most prints are vintage, but there are some reprints. Most prints are unbound and individual, but there is also one photo album in subseries XIII.2, and one photo album and one set of disbound photo albums in subseries XIII.3.

Subseries 6 includes 4 other photo albums with more wide-ranging subject matter. These include an album of Lewis Hine photographs of various CAS facilities and programs(individual prints of the same photographs and others by Lewis Hine are also arranged by facility in Subseries 2-4), and an interesting photo-essay about the CAS, composed ca. 1939 and 1944, consisting of a typed narrative about CAS programs and history illustrated by small sharp photographs attached by photocorners. See the subseries description for more information about this item and the other 2 photo albums in the subseries. Subseries 6 also includes oversize photographs and photographs that were neither commissioned by the CAS nor depicting the CAS, but which were kept by the CAS.

The Emigration Department company photographs (group portraits of children who traveled together) and other photographs in Subseries XIII.5 include the earliest photographs in the collection. This subseries contains prints and tintypes ca. 1890-1930's. In addition to these photographs, a complete list of Emigration Department case files containing thousands more prints, tintypes and postcards 1890's-1980's may be obtained from the reference department of the library at the New-York Historical Society. The photographers are unknown for all of the company photographs and most of the case file photographs. However, almost every tintype in the collection was taken by a single photographer named O'Connor, who worked from his studio on Eighth Avenue between 24th and 25th Streets. The tintypes most often depict adolescent boys and young men before they traveled to the country. Most of the tinytpes are individual portraits, some are group portraits of two or three boys, and a few tintypes include Trustee Evert Jansen Wendell with the boy.

Most of the photographs in the other subseries date from the 1910's through the early 1930's. These photographs were taken for public relations purposes, by photographers hired by the Children's Aid Society. The principal photographers represented in the collection are Underwood & Underwood (ca. 1908-1913), Brown & Dawson (a.k.a. Publisher's Photo Service) (ca. 1913-1926), A. Tennyson Beals (ca. 1915-1927), Hiram Myers (ca. 1923-1926), Paul Parker (ca. 1926-1932), and Lewis Hine (1928).

Most dates are approximate. Most photographs in this collection were never reprinted in documents in this collection, and those images that were reproduced in annual reports or other publications were often reproduced many years after the photographs were taken, making dating difficult. Conversely, most early photomechanical reproductions in the annual reports have no corresponding print in this collection; the originals have been lost. In addition, it is sometimes difficult to know with certainty which facility is depicted in a photograph. Every effort has been made to accurately identify facilities and ascertain approximate dates, based on cross-referencing photographs in CAS publications, using identification numbers and visual clues on the photographs, and mining the institutional memory of the CAS as researched by Victor Remer and the processing archivist, but misidentifications remain possible.

Subseries XIII.3 - Photographs of Country Facilties, circa 1908-1945

Scope and Contents

This subseries consists of 4 boxes of photographs and disbound photo albums, and 2 bound photo albums, divided into 4 sub-subseries.

XIII.3.A - Lewis Hine Prints of CAS Country Facilities - consists of prints by Lewis Hine of CAS country facilities, taken in 1928, arranged by print number. The photographs include a nearly complete set of 5x7 proofs numbered 1-84. Three numbers (45, 67, 79) are not represented, three additional numbers (5A, 31A, and 71A) are included, and there are a few duplicate proofs as well. The sub-subseries also includes 8x10 prints of many of these images. The images include many unpopulated landscapes, as well as images with people (especially farm school boys). The photographs were taken at a transitional time for the CAS, as the newly acquired Bowdoin Farm property in New Hamburg N.Y. was about to become a camp and farm school, replacing the Brace Farm School.

XIII.3.B - Photographs of Farm Schools - contains photographs of the CAS farm training programs arranged chronologically with Brace Farm School first, followed by Bowdoin Farm School, and then unidentified Brace and/or Bowdoin Farm School. Within these divisions, folders are further subdivided by photographer, and arranged numerically by photograph number within the folders. The sub-subseries concludes with a set of 8 small format disbound photo albums entitled "Bowdoin Farm Boys" from 1935-1943, consisting of 549 2.75 x 4.5 portraits of young men who attended the farm school.

XIII.3.C - Photographs of Camps - contains photographs of camp facilities, arranged alphabetically, and further subdivided chronologically. The Bowdoin Camp photographs include a bound photo album.

XIII.3.D - Photographs of Convalescent Facilities - contains photographs of CAS convalescent facilities, arranged alphabetically by facility.

Researchers should note that two of the same facilities used for camps were also used for farm schools, and Goodhue camp was also used as a home for girls preparing to go to foster care. Thus, there is some overlap between the sub-subseries. Lewis Hines' photographs of mixed country facilities are arranged as sub-subseries A. Photographs of Goodhue Home are arranged with Goodhue Camp in sub-subseries C. For a partial history of facility name and location changes, please see the note for Series IX.2: Facilities-Alphabetical. For a history of convalescent facilities, please see the note for Series X.

Sub-Subseries XIII.3.B - Photographs of Farm Schools

Scope and Contents

Brace Farm School, in Valhalla N.Y., operated 1894-1928 with the goal of exposing boys and young men to farm work, to ease the transition to farm life they would experience after subsequent placement by the Emigration/Placing-Out Program. Bowdoin Farm School, in New Hamburg N.Y., began operating in 1929 and provided a more extensive farm training program to prepare young men for employment on farms.

This sub-subseries contains photographs of the CAS farm schools arranged chronologically with Brace Farm School first, followed by Bowdoin Farm School, and then unidentified Brace and/or Bowdoin Farm School. Within these divisions, folders are further subdivided by photographer, and arranged numerically by photograph number within the folders.

Subseries XIII.6 - Other Albums and Photographs, circa 1900-circa 1944

Scope and Contents

This subseries is divided into 3 sub-subseries:

XIII.6.A - Photo Albums - includes 2 photo albums created by the CAS covering many aspects of the organization. The content of these albums is too wide-ranging to fit the more narrowly defined subseries 1-5 above. The sub-subseries also includes 2 photo albums made by people affiliated with the CAS, although the albums do not in any clear way relate to CAS activities. For more information about all 4 photo albums, please see individual subseries notes.

XIII.6.B - Oversize - consists of 1 folder in a separate oversize (OS) box containing 7 photographs, 4 of them mounted on cardboard or foam backing. All except one are reprints of photographs found in Series XIII.2 and XIII.3 above. The one photograph which has no smaller or vintage counterpart is a 10.5x14 print of Franklin Delano Roosevelt visiting Bowdoin Farm on August 10, 1933.

XIII.6.C - Other Photographs - contains 3 folders of miscellaneous photographs which were neither commissioned by the CAS nor depicting images of the CAS, but which nevertheless made their way into the CAS files. 1 folder contains vintage prints by Lewis Hine, from his photo series on child labor in cotton mills and agriculture; the images were from 1908 and 1915, before he was hired by the CAS.

Sub-Subseries XIII.6.A - Photo Albums

Scope and Contents

This sub-subseries contains 4 photo albums - 2 bound albums arranged chronologically (by Evert Jansen Wendell, ca. 1900-1910; and an album assembled by an unknown person at the CAS using photos by Lewis Hine, 1928), followed by 2 disbound albums arranged chronologically (probably by Louisa de Ferrari Weygandt or Lillian Weygandt ca. 1906, 1910 and undated; and by an unknown person or people at the CAS, ca. 1936-1944).

Two of these albums present a broad visual picture of the CAS: The Hine album contains a selection of some of the prints also collected in proof form in subseries XIII.2-4 above. The album documents the work of the CAS in various locations, with captions.

The 1936-1944 album/report is a photo essay which appears to be a draft, with original photographs attached to the pages by photocorners. The author(s) and photographer are unknown. It is unknown whether any final version of the report was ever produced. The entire volume was housed in a 3-ring binder. The section relating to Bowdoin Farm, placed at the back of the binder, was written in 1939, with 2 supplemental pages from 1944. The Bowdoin Farm pages have numerous editorial comments penciled or penned in. The other sections from the front of the binder (Centers, Newsboys, Convalescent Homes) appear to have been written in 1944 and perhaps constitute a later draft, as they have fewer editorial comments. The section on Convalescent Homes does not include photographs, but the other sections are richly illustrated with many 2.5"x 2.5" photographs, attached to the pages by photocorners. Some photographs are missing from the pages. There is no section on camps, but there are four loose photographs which may or may not have been intended for a section on that subject.

The other two photo albums were created by CAS-affiliated people, but the albums' relationship to the work of the CAS is unclear. The 1900-1910 photo album was assembled by Evert Jansen Wendell, a trustee of the CAS from 1902-1917 who is well represented throughout this collection by photographs and other material. His album consists of photographs from a trip to Cuba. It is probable that either Louisa de Ferrari Weygandt, Italian School principal from 1860-1921 or her daughter Lillian Weygandt, principal 1921-1930, is the creator of the 1906-1910 album, which was kept at their center until it was forwarded to the CAS archives at an unknown date. The photographs depict people in the country, possibly Venoge, NY.
