Photo Number 1810

This is a photo from Craig’s Collection.

herbert S  Craigs

Stafford in Minneapolis was the photographer.  In the Minnesota State Historical Records I find him there from 1893 to 1899.

herbert S  Craigs back folder says class of 04

Herbert Stunson? Sternson?  The back of this folder also says Class of 04.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. That handwriting is nearly inscrutable. I'm thinking it might be Stimson or even Stemson.

  2. I wonder who actually wrote the name on the back of the photograph: the subject himself? The photographer? The person who received the picture? I wonder if there is wiggle room for creative spelling...

    Iggy is probably right about the spelling of the name. There is a Herbert W. Stimson in an 1879 Minneapolis city directory--possibly this man's father. And there is a Herbert O. Stimpson there in the 1900 census. Maybe these are possibilities...
