General Collection

This collection contains a small number of images for which we don't have much information, such as the name of the contributor or how they came to the Museum, or for some other reason they don't fit into the other collections. Some come from published sources we hold for reference purposes.

Image is of two men standing next to a cross-cut saw embedded in a log sitting atop a sawbuck with several cut lengths of firewood on the ground. Several boys are behind them, two holding axes. They all stand between two rows of colony tents with clothes hanging on lines behind them and trees beyond.
Image is of four women, identified as Palmer teachers Gloria Wilson, Wanda Kauffeld, Joann Farnsworth, and Joyce Campbell.  Information furnished with the photo indicates that all began teaching in Palmer in September 1954, with Wanda and Joyce teaching one year, Gloria taught three years and Joann taught in Palmer for 10 years.
