The Harris-Wilson Family Photographs and Scrapbooks is a collection that spans the years 1846-1938, with the bulk of materials from ca. 1880-1900. Unfortunately little is know about the provenance of this collection. The source of the materials is unknown as well as the date that is was received by the Tennessee State Library & Archives. This collection contains two Wilson family scrapbooks, two Harris family scrapbooks, five photograph albums, and 497 photographs that were not included in scrapbooks or albums. The collection measures approximately six linear feet. The loose photographs are grouped into three sizes to facilitate storage. Even though many of the photographs are not identified and very little is known of the provenance, the quality of the items exemplifies the life style of families of prominence during the period of the 1890’s.
