Mary Ellen Hunter Irvine photograph album
The photographs of Mary Irvine reflect the lives of two women active in Newcomb College. Mary Irvine, a Newcomb graduate of 1925, kept a scrapbook during and after her student days that contains photographs of May Day 1924, friends, and travels. A few more photographs collected during her 50th reunion in 1975 are located in another scrapbook. The majority of the photographs in this collection were evidently owned by her sister-in-law, Sadie Irvine, a Newcomb faculty member and artist. Included here are two scrapbooks of prints focusing on Sadie's brother and Mary's husband, Wynne Irvine, during his childhood. Other photographs collected by Sadie include photos of herself, her parents and brother, more distant family, and her friends. There are a few photographs of Sadie decorating pottery.
