D. Vols. 4-5: Dixwell family travel albums, 1872-1873

Two albums of commercial photographs collected by Epes Sargent Dixwell and Mary Ingersoll Bowditch Dixwell when they traveled to Europe during 1872 and 1873 with their daughters, Aria Sargent Dixwell and Mary Catherine Dixwell (later Wigglesworth). Vol. 4 contains 284 paper photographs that depict landscape views and people of Ireland, England, London, France, Monaco, and Italy, collected by the Wigglesworths from Aug. 1872 to May 1873. Vol. 5 contains 196 paper photographs that depict landscapes and people of Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, France, England, and Scotland, collected by the Wigglesworths from May-Sept. 1873. The photographs are captioned in an unknown hand and record the dates and places to which the family traveled. Both albums are inscribed in an unknown hand: "Given to M. C. D. Wigglesworth, 1899." None of the photographers are identified.

E. Vol. 6: Epes Sargent Dixwell cyanotypes, ca. 1880-1890

28 cyanotype photographs taken by Epes Sargent Dixwell, ca. 1880-1890. The photographs depict embroideries hanging in the Dixwell family home, flowers, various family members, homes and buildings in Cambridge and Belmont, Mass., and landscapes of Manchester and Rockport, Mass. The photographs are all undated and identified in Dixwell's hand.

II. LOOSE PHOTOGRAPHS

3 boxes and 1 oversize box.

This series contains loose photographs not contained in the albums. It is arranged into six series: Portraits (A); Views (B); photographs of the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 (C); photographs of manuscripts and artifacts (D); Oversize photographs (E); and "Just Glimpses" photomechanicals.

A. Portraits

Arranged alphabetically.

118 carte de visite, cabinet card, tintype, daguerreotype, and ambrotype photographs of members of the Wigglesworth family. Most of the portraits are of the children of Henrietta May Goddard Wigglesworth and Edward Wigglesworth (1804-1876) and the family of their son, George Wigglesworth, and his wife, Mary Catherine Dixwell Wigglesworth. Individuals represented include Henrietta May Goddard Wigglesworth; Epes Sargent Dixwell; George Wigglesworth; and Norton Wigglesworth, among many others. Photographers include Ruth Wigglesworth Whitney, as well as Allen & Rowell, Antoine Sonrel, Augustus Marshall, John Adams Whipple, and James Wallace Black, all of Boston, Mass., among many others. Many of the images have duplicate copies. Most of these photographs belonged to Mary Catherine Dixwell Wigglesworth and have her comments and recollections about them inscribed on the verso of the images. They were turned over to Ruth Wigglesworth Whitney in Sept. 1966.

Please note that daguerreotypes and ambrotypes are stored in separate collections: Daguerreotypes (Photo. Coll. 1) and Ambrotypes (Photo. Coll. 2). When requesting glass-based photographs, the reader should use those call numbers, NOT Photo. Coll. 92.
