William Simeon Campbell Photograph Albums and Papers

Identifier: MC 1427

Scope and Content Note

The papers consist primarily of materials created, collected, and arranged by Campbell during the course of his life in Fayetteville, Arkansas from 1900 to 1960.

Eighteen photograph albums and photograph/scrapbook albums are included with a limited amount of loose photographs, correspondence, family history notes, memorial books for W. S. and Blanche Dora Campbell, and a few printed items. The photographs depict family life, school and community activities, buildings and landscapes, and automobile trips. There are many pictures of the University of Arkansas. Family members are the most frequent subjects. Several albums picture Galveston, Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, where the Campbells frequently traveled. The photographs range from snapshots to 8" x 10" professionally made portraits. Most are black and white; the later photographs are in color. A selective index to the albums is included with this Finding Aid. Also included is a framed frontispiece to Campbell's book, One Hundred Years of Fayetteville, created by artist J. H. Field.

Associated material housed in Special Collections consists of four items in the Washington County Historical Society Collection. Two folders contain correspondence to and from W. S. Campbell primarily related to the publication and sale of the book 100 Years of Fayetteville, 1828-1928. (See MC 1368, Box 13). Two other notebooks contain Campbell’s personal and professional correspondence, ca 1927-1951. (See MC 1368, Volumes 85 and 86).

Selective Index to Photographs in Albums

This index includes members of the Campbell and related families, as well as friends and other persons, places, and events of importance to the history of Fayetteville and North Arkansas. Places in other states are indexed if they pertain to the careers of W. S. Campbell or his son, Errington. Most vacation pictures are not indexed.

An example of the location code is: B3, A7, p12 (1919). This means: Box 3, Album 7, page 12 and date of photograph.
