Additional donations have added some depth to the collection, including original tracts and offprints, as well as further addition of photocopies of more obscure articles. The focus of the collection would now have to be three original photographs, one of which is pictured at the right. The other two photographs are two poses from the same photographic sitting, dated 9 April 1867.

Span dates: 1864-2007 Size: 1.0 cu. ft.
