Oliver Matthews Photograph Collection, 1922-1964

Scope and Content Note

The collection also includes images portraying the Matthews family at home and on vacation, milling operations, Oregon geological features, and images photographed from magazines and newspapers of articles and cartoons. Print copies of many of these negatives can be found in scrapbooks assembled by Matthews that have been described as a part of a manuscript collection. Notes on the envelopes housing many of the negatives suggest that Matthews prepared these images to be published as part of a proposed, but never published, book titled Roughings Out. A chronologically arranged index to the images, which were numbered by Matthews, is also included in this collection.
