Scope and Content

Roy E Will and Jane (Jennie) E Atherton Will were students at Washington State ca. 1908-1913. Portraits of Washington State College ca. 1908-1912, accumulated by then-students Roy Will and Jane Atherton Will. Notable is a series of photographs depicting a ROTC training camp at Clarkston, WA, held in 1912. While a few images predate or postdate 1908-1912, the bulk of the materials are within that period. Roy Will's parents owned farmland near Harrington, WA, and the majority of the post-1913 farming photos are from that location.
