Abstract: Black-and-white and tinted postcards dating from 1906 to 1969 (bulk 1920 to 1939). The bulk of the collection is arranged geographically. The materials for Europe are particularly extensive, in particular for England, France, Italy, and Spain; there are also postcards for North Africa and the Middle East. The number of postcards for the United States is small, and relates primarily to national parks. A relatively small number of postcards is organized by person (primarily artists) or subject. Other materials include prints, engraved and photographic plates removed from printed books (often cut down to 4" x 6"), business cards, guidebooks, information on various hotels and restaurants, and wrappers from postcard sets.

Historical note

The origins of this collection cannot be determined with absolute certainty. However, approximately 150 postcards in the collection were posted, and all but a handful of these can be traced to two families.
The earliest postcards, of English localities and posted in 1906-1910, were addressed to Stella Radford, of Algoma, Wisconsin, and her niece, Ruth M. Radford (born 1896), of Mansfield, Louisiana, from C. Robinson. In 1926, Ruth Radford married Winfield Fabian Herman, MD, who was born in Seattle in 1901, and after receiving a BA from the University of Washington had earned his medical degree from Louisiana State University in New Orleans. The couple appears to have lived at first in Tacoma, Washington; Ruth took an extended trip to France and Britain without her husband in 1928. The couple moved to Glendale, California, in 1947, where Dr. Herman served on the staff of Glendale Adventist Medical Center, Verdugo Hills Hospital, and Glendale Memorial Hospital (where he became chief of staff in 1960). He entered private practice in 1968, and retired in 1983. Ruth died in 1976, and Dr. Herman in 1998. As the couple had no children they engaged in extensive philanthopy, including donating substantial sums for scholarships to Pomona College and the University of Southern California.
A number of postcards are addressed to Stella (Mrs. James N.) Sherman, who in 1929-1931 resided at 426 South Central Ave., Glendale, and later at 341 West Broadway, Glendale. While it is tempting to posit that she was formerly Stella Radford (who appears to have been living in Portland, Oregon, in 1928), and thus Ruth (Radford) Herman's aunt, none of the postcards addressed to her was written by Ruth.
The second family to which the majority of posted postcards can be traced to Dr. Nathaniel Green, his wife, Mary R., and their daughter Frances M. The Green family appears to have moved from Ashville, North Carolina, to Glendale in 1913, settling by 1920 at 1120 E. Windsor Road. Postcards addressed to Frances indicate she continued to reside at the Windsor Road address throughout the 1930s; between 1955 and 1969 she lived at 1314 N. Central Avenue, Glendale. (She is probably the Frances M. Green, born May 3, 1900, who according to the Social Security Death Index died in Glendale on January 15, 1974.) Frances Green was acquainted with Stella Sherman as early as 1929; between 1957 and 1967, Frances also addressed a number of postcards to Ruth (Radford) Herman.
It is not known how the Herman family postcards became merged with the postcards addressed to Stella Sherman and Frances Green, although it is possible that both Mrs. Sherman and Miss Green, dying before Ruth (Radford) Herman, left their collections to her. It is most probably through the Hermans' connection with Pomona College that these postcards found their way into the collections of Honnold/Mudd Library.
It should be noted that the collection has almost certainly suffered some disturbance since it came to Honnold/Mudd Library, as it now contains a postcard addressed to E. Wilson Lyon while a student at St. John's College, Oxford.

Scope and Contents note

The collection consists of black-and-white and tinted postcards dating from 1906 to 1969 (bulk from 1920 to 1939), together with a number of photographs, prints, clippings, and ephemera, dating from the same period, with a single item dating from 1885. The bulk of the postcards is arranged geographically by region, then by country, and within each country alphabetically by locality. Most countries also include a number of postcards filed under "folk costumes and customs". The materials for Europe are extensive, in particular for England, France, Italy, and Spain; the number of postcards for North Africa and the Middle East is considerably smaller. The number of postcards for the United States is quite small, and relates primarily to national parks in the western states. A relatively small number of postcards is organized by person (primarily artists) or subject. Other materials include prints, engraved and photographic plates removed from printed books (often cut down to 4" x 6"), business cards, guidebooks, information on various hotels and restaurants, and wrappers from postcard sets.

Series 1:  Postcards. 1906-1969.

Physical Description: 8 shoeboxes.

Scope and Contents note

These postcards, forming the bulk of the collection, are arranged geographically by region, then by country, and within each country alphabetically by locality. Most countries also include a number of postcards filed under "folk costumes and customs". The materials for Europe are extensive, in particular for England, France, Italy, and Spain. Postcards for London and Paris are arranged as "general" postcards, followed by significant buildings, monuments, and streets. The number of postcards for North Africa and the Middle East is considerably smaller. The postcards for France and Germany in particular document the condition of the localities pictured prior to the devastation of World War II; those for Palestine document the country before the destruction caused during and after the formation of the State of Israel. The number of postcards for the United States is quite small, and relates primarily to national parks in the western states. The postcards for Idaho are made from personal photographs and document a trip undertaken (probably by Wilfred Herman) in 1925; commercially produced postcards for the Columbia River Highway in Oregon have similar markings. One-half an archival "shoebox" contains postcards arranged alphabetically by person. The people represented are primarily artists, although a significant number of postcards also portray and document the Bonaparte family, the life of Dante Alighieri, and the life of, and characters created by, Charles Dickens. An additional one-half shoebox contains postcards arranged alphabetically by subject, including art that could not be assigned to a specific artist, musical composers, depictions of the character of Don Quixote, characters from 16th-century British history, Popes, members of various European ruling families, and World War I monuments in France.
