Biographical Sketch

Peter Chardon Brooks (1831-1920) The son of Gorham Brooks (1795-1855) and Ellen (Shepherd) (1809-1884), born at Watertown (now Belmont), Mass., 8 May 1831. He prepared for college under Samuel Eliot, and was admitted to Harvard in Aug. 1848, graduating in 1852. He devoted himself largely to agriculture, forestry, and art, and was a trustee for valuable estates. He also traveled extensively. He lived for many years on Arlington Street in Boston, then on Bay State Road. The family had a large summer estate, "Point of Rocks," at West Medford. Peter Chardon Brooks married Sarah Lawrence (1845-1915), daughter of Amos Adams Lawrence (1814-1886) and Sarah Elizabeth (Appleton) (1822-1891). Sarah Lawrence Brooks was an amateur and prolific photographer. She had six siblings: Marianne Appleton Lawrence (1843-1882); Amory Appleton Lawrence (b. 1848); William Lawrence (1850-1941), who was elected a Bishop of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Massachusetts in 1893; Susan Mason Lawrence (b. 1852); Hetty Sullivan Lawrence (1855-1931); and Harriet Dexter Lawrence (b. 1858). Sarah Lawrence and Peter Chardon Brooks had two children: Eleanor (b. 1867) and Lawrence (b. 1868).

Eleanor Brooks Saltonstall (1867-1961) The daughter of Sarah Lawrence (1845-1915) and Peter Chardon Brooks. She married in 1891 Richard Middlecott Saltonstall (1859-1922), son of Leverett Saltonstall (1825-1895) and Rose Smith (Lee), and also a descendant of Sir Richard Saltonstall (1586-1661). The couple had four children: Leverett (1892-1979), Eleanor "Nora" (1894-1919), Muriel Gurdon (1896-1990) and Richard (1897-1979). Leverett Saltonstall served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1923-1927, as Speaker of the Massachusetts House of Representatives from 1929-1937, as governor of Massachusetts from 1939-1945, and as U.S. Senator from Massachusetts from 1945-1967. His sister, Eleanor "Nora" Saltonstall, served overseas with the Red Cross for about a year during World War I. Upon her return, she traveled through the Western U.S. on an auto camping trip, during which she contracted typhoid fever and died in late July 1919.

Muriel Gurdon Saltonstall Lewis (1896-1990) The third child of Eleanor (Brooks) and Richard Middlecott Saltonstall (1859-1922), she was an avid horsewoman and yachtswoman. She married in 1926 George Lewis (1887-1952), a graduate of Harvard and also an avid horseman. They made their home in Sherborn, Mass. The couple had two children: Eleanor Saltonstall (b. 1928) and George (b. 1931). Eleanor Saltonstall Lewis married Levin H. Campbell (b. 1927).

Collection Description

The Saltonstall-Brooks-Lewis family photographs contains 3676 photographs in 5 boxes, 2 oversize boxes, and 37 volumes. The collection dates from between ca. 1840 and 1945 and consists mostly of formal portrait and informal snapshot photographs of various members of the Saltonstall, Brooks, and Lewis families.

Seven boxes contain loose photographs, dating from ca. 1840-1938, consist mostly of portraits of various members of the Saltonstall, Brooks, and Lewis families. Subjects of the portraits include Lawrence Brooks, Sarah Lawrence Brooks, George Lewis, Muriel Gurdon Saltonstall Lewis, Eleanor "Nora" Saltonstall, Eleanor Brooks Saltonstall, and Richard Middlecott Saltonstall, among many others. There are also a number of loose views, depicting the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Brooks family estate in West Medford, Mass., and Boston, Mass., among many other places; many of these photographs were taken by Sarah Lawrence Brooks. Additionally, there are also several photographs of artwork, ships, and automobiles.

Thirty-seven volumes of photograph albums, dating from ca. 1850-1935, mostly contain formal portraits and informal snapshot of various members of the Saltonstall, Brooks, Lawrence, and Lewis families. There are also a number of volumes of photographs taken by Sarah Lawrence Brooks of views of family homes in West Medford, Groton, and Wareham, Mass., as well as portraits she took of family members. Additionally, the volumes also contain photographs depicting Eleanor Brooks Saltonstall's service with the Red Cross in France in World War I; Muriel Gurdon Saltonstall Lewis's wedding to George Lewis in 1926; the family life and U.S. travels of the Richard Middlecott Saltonstall family; Lawrence Brooks's travels abroad and in the Western U.S. (including photographs taken by novelist Owen Wister); and the dedication of the Founder's Monument in Watertown, Mass. in 1935, among other subjects.

This collection includes tintypes, cartes de visite, cabinet cards, stereographs, and other paper-based photographs. There are also a number of glass-based photographs (daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, opaque glass photographs, and lantern slides), all of which are stored apart from this collection by format (see the Photograph List for details). The daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and opaque glass photographs depict members of the Brooks, Lawrence, and Saltonstall families, among others. The lantern slides depict views of Eleanor Brooks Saltonstall's gardens in Chestnut Hill, Mass., ca. 1933.

Studio photographers represented in this collection include photographers James Wallace Black, Augustus Marshall, James Notman, John Adams Whipple, and Allen & Rowell, all of Boston, Mass.; George Kendall Warren of Boston, Mass.; and the Keystone View Company, among many others. Amateur photographers represented in the collection include Charlotte Allen, Lawrence Brooks, Sarah Lawrence Brooks, Margaret Coe Cunningham, and Owen Wister.

58 loose photographs and 1 photograph album (Vol. 43) were found stored apart from the collection in May 2004 and were added to the collection and finding aid. The loose photographs that were added at this time are identified by the addition of a letter after their call number (example: Photo. #33.191c).

In addition to the above materials, 34 postcard albums were removed from the collection and stored with the MHS postcard collections (Saltonstall-Brooks-Lewis family postcards).
