John and Vera Eccles Photograph Collection

Identifier: P-185


This photograph collection was donated with the John and Vera Eccles Manuscript collection. The photographs are broken up into two parts, professional and personal. This collection contains the personal photographs of John David and his family. There are three main series to this collection, Photographs, Negatives, and Slides.

The Photograph series is broken up into sub-series of Families with the rest of the photographs being listed as Extended Family, Events, Buildings and Miscellaneous. The families are John and Shirlie, John and Vera and David Eccles. John and Shirlie contains all the photographs of them and their children and families. John and Vera follow the same pattern. The David Eccles includes the rest of the Eccles family that does not fall into the other two but are still related to the David family. Events include family gatherings, birthdays, funerals and unknown gatherings.

The Negatives series contains negatives, some of which correspond with the photographs in the Family series. Those negatives are stated as such.

The Slides series contain close to 5,000 slides of family, home construction and trips. Some of the slides correspond with photographs, but not all are stated as such. There are also glass slides and oversized slides.
