Series IX: Photographic and Audiovisual Materials, 1924-2010

Scope and Content Note

This series primarily contains black-and-white and color photographs, slides, glass plate negatives, and photographic negatives that document camp facilities, camp activities, and the staff and campers themselves. The series also includes an original pen and ink cartoon and various original and laser copies of posters and other graphic materials related to the camp's 75th anniversary and other events in the camp's history, possibly used for the anniversary exhibit. Also of note are reproductions of murals on various radical and labor history topics, created by Camp Kinderland campers and staff and published in the late 1990s and 2000s.

This series also contains oral history interviews with former campers and recordings of camp plays and other activities on a variety of audiovisual formats.

Glass Plate Negatives

Scope and Content Note

This subseries contains glass plate negatives from the summer of 1935 at Camp Kinderland, with some images from 1936. The majority of the images depict groups at the camp, many of which have no identifying information. Most of the description for the images are in Yiddish, with some English. Some significant events shown in the images include the camp's morning salute, a visit to the camp from Robert Minor, and the erection of the Lenin statue on the property.
