Two Framed Photographs: Seminary Students, Christ Church; Port Au Prince.

1920 Seminary Students. Two 8” x 6” black and white photographs dated 1920 of unidentified seminary students. The photographs are mounted in a single wooden frame. Although these photographs have detailed notation, the script is difficult to decipher. Likely, the writing is a list of names of those in the photographs. The first photograph shows men in graduation regalia holding diplomas. The second photograph shows a larger group of men posed, seated in front of a building which appears to be a Victorian Gothic building (perhaps a church, seminary or college). In both photographs, white Anglo clergy are surrounded by what appear to be South Asian students. A notation at the bottom of one photograph reads in part: “Christ Church.” What is curious is that, written on the back of the frame mounting, is a notation: “Christ Church; Port Au Prince,” although research has not been able to connect these photographs and Haiti.
