Series 8: Visual Materials, 1897-1931

Scope and Contents note

This series includes a stencil, photographs, prints, sketches, negatives, blueprints, and a certificate of election to the Bostonian Society (1907). The bulk of this material is undated and its subjects are often unidentified. Notable identified photographs include those of Kitson subjects and works, such as Lt. Gen. Lee, Governor Banks, Robert Burns, the Parker statue, and others. Also included is a photographic series of head shots of Calvin Coolidge, apparently taken in preparation for a bust. Notable sketches include a caricature of (presumably) Henry Kitson, a rough drawing of the Endicott tablet, and details of the pedestal for the Newburyport "Volunteer." Most of the blueprints in the series pertain to the Sir Richard Saltonstall memorial, especially the lettering for it, at Watertown, Massachusetts.
