Biographical/Historical note

William James, 1842-1910, is a noted psychologist and philosopher. The album was apparently a gift from him to Pauline Goldmark. James did visit the Banff area at least once, spending several days there in early 1898, so it is possible he acquired the images then. The handwritten identifiers on the photographs do not match James' handwriting, nor was he known to do photography, so presumably these were custom or commercially produced and bound, and later gifted.

Scope and Contents note

Twenty 9"x7" photographs of the Canadian Rockies, primarily near Banff, each printed on 12"x9 sheets which were cloth-mounted. The sheets were part of a three-hole album. All images are labeled but undated.

Arrangement note

The images are retained in what is presumably their original order, with the album cover at the end of the collection.

Conditions Governing Access note

This collection is open and available for research use.

Immediate Source of Acquisition note

It is unclear when the collection came to MASC. The album was apparently a 1905 gift from philosopher William James to Pauline Goldmark. A note in the album cover reads "Pauline Goldmark. 270 W. 94 St." A second note under that reads "from William James. 1905."

Processing Information note

The collection has been unbound, which presumably happened at the original processing.
