Scope and Contents note

The first half of the album, approximately 155 photographs, deals with life at Washington State College in Pullman, Washington, from 1906-1911. The second half of the album, approximately 215 photographs, comprises family photographs in a variety of locations. The only identifiable subjects which receive a large quantity of coverage are images from Marshfield (later Coos Bay), Oregon, from 1911-1913, many of young Emma Bell Stadden (born 1911). Very limited coverage is given to a number of other items, including a trip to Alaka, the 1909 Yukon Pacific Exposition, and a Memorial Arch at Genessee, Idaho which appears to remember those who fought in the Spanish-American War.
