Series I: Photographic Materials, 1860-1951

Scope and Content Note

Photographic Materials comprises the majority of the collection with 371 photographs spanning the 1860s to the 1950s. The photos follow multiple lines of the de Saisset family, primarily focusing on Pedro de Saisset's children. Included in the photos are extended family members such as the French line of the de Saissets, the Sunols, the Sainsevains and the Brassys. Also included in the photos are properties owned by the de Saisset family, as well as reproductions of Ernest de Saisset's paintings and photos of Ernest painting in his family-owned studio. Additionally, photographs of locations outside the United States, such as a family trip of the Degraffenreid line to Kenya and an unidentified Catholic priest’s mission work in Jamaica, are included.
