Series Scope and Content Summary
This local family collection is a good example of the ordinary experiences of a family during World War II. This series
consists of hand-written and typed copies of creative writings by Geraldine McGrady Jones, representing her reflections on
domestic life, children, and the loss of her two sons in World War II. Part of this collection includes digital images that
were produced from the original family photographic album, which the family maintains. The album documents the history of
the family from 1850 through the 1940s. As part of the original gift, daughters Geraldine (Gerri) Peters and Betty Emrett
recorded a brief narrative of their personal experiences growing-up in Los Gatos. The audio file and transcriptsincluded in
this series provide an overview of their early family life.
This series is arranged by format.
