Forty-six black-and-white photographic prints used to illustrate
Pioneer days in Kern County, an autobiographical account by Arthur S. Crites of his family, early education, and life as a young man and miner in Kern
46 photographic prints : b&w ; 22 x 28 cm or smaller + 4 maps + 50 leaves (typescript ; 28 cm)
Photographs are unbound, although the three holes punched along left margins suggest that they were once held in a 3-ring
looseleaf notebook. Versos of photographs contain editor's proof numbering and notes in black crayon, and inkstamp of "Cal
Williams Photo Service" [of Bakersfield?].
Spec. Coll. copy: Photographs are stacked in a modern beige cloth clamshell box, with box title "Illustrations for Pioneer
days in Kern County." Laid in with photographs are  typescript leaves containing editor's proofs of the cutlines or captions
for each photograph as they were to appear in the book; and four maps of Kern County in pencil (two folded), also used as
illustrations in the Crites' book.
