Kerr Family Collection

 Collection
Identifier: MS-36

Scope and Contents

The Kerr Family Collection was donated in 1985, by Dr. Knight B. Kerr on behalf of the Walter A. Kerr family. The collection contains personal correspondence, journals, autobiographies, newspaper clippings, photographs, and various other materials that outline primarily the history of the Gilbert Belnap family. However, the materials do provide insight into some aspects of the early history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, as well as life in 19th century Ogden and surrounding areas.

Manuscript items are organized alphabetically by the family member’s name. Within the folders, items are organized alphabetically by categories (i.e. biographical information, correspondence, journals, etc), and finally the items within each category are organized chronologically. Photographs are separated into two groups: family/group photographs, and photographs of individuals. The photographs are then organized alphabetically by name, and chronologically within the folders.
