Series V: Jennings Family

Scope and Contents note

Series V. Jennings Family consists of photographs and albums documenting the family and professional life of Dr. Edward Jennings, including his siblings, parents, and extended family. Formal photographs portray a variety of Jennings and Allen family members. Albums relate to Dr. Jennings' medical career, education, and extracurricular activities at Wesleyan and Columbia Universities. Photographs of Dr. Jennings with ambulances and staff from Fordham and Harlem Hospitals are included. One album pertains to Arthur Bates Jennings, Jr.' s career as an organist; it contains photographs, sheet music of works composed by Jennings, church bulletins and programs for performances. A family album holds informal snapshots of members of the Jennings family in a variety of settings. Oversize photographs at the end are primarily group portraits from hospitals and schools with which Dr. Edward Jennings was associated.

Photographs are arranged in three subseries: photographs, negatives, and albums. Thereunder they are filed alphabetically by sitter or group. Oversize group portraits are filed at the end of the series.
