Title : Margaret Hazen Muller photo collection, ca. 1840-ca. 1910.
Physical Description : 36 photographs (2 boxes, 4 folders).
Summary :

This collection includes 36 photographic images of members of the Dustin and Paddock families, related family members, and friends from the Craftsbury, Vermont, area taken during the period ca. 1840 - ca. 1910. Many of the subjects of the photos were related to the Crafts family through marriage. Thirteen of the images are daguerreotypes, 15 are ambrotypes, 7 are tintypes, and one is a small print from a negative. It is surmised that some of these photographs may have been made by James Wellington Stevens, a Craftsbury photographer. Stevens' image appears in one of the photographs in this collection (see FB 64.25). In addition to the photographs, a small notebook (3.75" x 6") was acquired with the collection. This notebook contains 17 newspaper clippings, all of which relate to Margaret (Hazen) Muller's aunt, Carolyn Augusta (Paddock) Pratt.
