Place:
San Francisco (mostly)

Publisher:

Date:
c. 1887

Description:
54 cabinet card portraits, each approximately 6½x4¼", plus 6 cartes de visite, each approximately 4x2½". 39 of the cabinet cards are identified on the rear as members of the UC Berkeley Class of 1887 (2 of the identified students have 2 different portraits each), one of the CDV photographs is also identified (a second photograph of one the identified students). A total of 40 identified images of 37 different students. There are also 15 additional cabinet cards either unidentified or with the sitter not on the list of graduates in the class of 1887 but all presumably somehow connected with the University. The class of 1887 numbered only 59 students so this collection puts faces to approximately two-thirds of the class roster. Most images from the studio of Chas. Lanier of San Francisco, several other local studios also represented.
