    Biographical Note

    Henry Greenwood Peabody (1855-1951), photographer, lecturer, and publisher of educational slides and films, enjoyed a remarkable career spanning nearly sixty years. Peabody produced thousands of photographs, slides, and films documenting the American landscape, worked in virtually every photographic process, delivered lectures describing the scenery that he so lovingly photographed, and published books that visually described the landscapes and scenery in which he specialized.
    Peabody was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the son of a minister. He attended Washington University in St. Louis, the Pennsylvania Military Academy, and Dartmouth College, where he graduated in 1876. It was while a senior at Dartmouth that Peabody first became interested in photography, producing views of the Dartmouth campus and scenes along the New England coast.
    After graduation, Peabody spent a year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology studying architecture, electricity, and physics. He then went to work briefly as an engineer for the Western Electric Company in Chicago and New York. In 1879 Peabody set up a studio with Alexander Hesler in Chicago. While there, he met and married Dora Phelps, and the two relocated to Boston where Peabody opened a studio in 1886. He specialized in marine, landscape and architectural photography. He also served as the official photographer for the Boston and Maine Railroad and the Great Northern Railway, photographed the Americas Cup races, and published Representative American Yachts and The Coast of Maine. In 1899, he traveled to Mexico as photographer to the American Architectural Expedition; his photographs were published in Spanish-Colonial Architecture in Mexico by Sylvester Baxter. Peabody won numerous awards for his photography.
    After Dora's death in 1898, Peabody needed security for his only child Mildred, and accepted a position with the Detroit Publishing Company, the largest postcard publisher in the United States. From 1900-1908 he served as field photographer on both the east and west coasts. Famed landscape photographer and company founder William Henry Jackson selected Peabody for this position because of the high regard in which he held Peabody's outdoor work. Because of copyright arragnements, many of the images Peabody created for the Detroit Publishing Company have been wrongly identified as those of Jackson.
    Shortly after joining the Detroit Publishing Company, Peabody relocated with his young daughter to Pasadena, and his primary focus shifted to the landscape of the American West. He also traveled to England and France in 1908 to photograph cathedrals and other architectural monuments for the Horace K. Turner Company of Boston.
    From about 1910 to the end of his career, Peabody produced photographs and slides of the American landscape for educational purposes. He published series of educational lantern and film slides and educational films (the "Swastika Educational Series") with accompanying narratives that focused on national parks in the American West. He also delivered illustrated lectures that covered the Grand Canyon, the California Missions, Yosemite, and Mexico. By the early 1930s, he was making audio recordings designed to synchronize with the slide shows; he called these his "talking films" and they were included in his educational offerings.
    Peabody spent his later years selling photographic equipment and photographing the landscape around his home in the San Gabriel Valley. He died at his home in Glendora, California, just one month shy of his ninety-sixth birthday. His life, according to one historian, "embraced the whole cycle of photography from its earliest days as a novelty to the era when every man could be his own camera expert. He exerted a vital influence on the profession and on the acceptance of photographs in the public interest. Among critics and collectors his work stands high in artistic merit" (Ralph W. Andrews, Photographers of the Frontier West. Seattle: Superior Publishing Company, 1965, p. 169.).

    Scope and Contents

    The Peabody Collection consists of 672 glass plate negatives (4 x 5 inch, 5 x 7 inch, and 8 x 10 inch), 1054 film negatives (4 x 5 inch, 5 x 7 inch, 8 x 10 inch, and stereograph), 24 photograph albums (housing 1174 photographs), and 887 loose photographs (boudoir cards, cartes-de-visite, stereographs, 8 x 10 inch prints, and large mounted prints), published works, and manuscript material (ledgers, catalogs, correspondence, and ephemeral materials), created and collected by Henry G. Peabody, 1859-1993 (bulk 1890s-1900s). The materials describe Peabody's long career as a commercial landscape photographer working on both the east and west coasts of the United States.
    The photographs and negatives depict Peabody and his family; landscape views in New England, Canada, the western United States, California, and Mexico; Native Americans; city and landscape views in Great Britain, France, and Switzerland; portraits; architectural renderings; plants and animals; unidentified landscapes; and miscellaneous images.
    The images of Peabody and his family consist of portraits of Peabody, his wife Dora, and daughter Mildred; family photographs; and images from family trips. The majority were taken by Peabody in his studio at 52 Boylston Street in Boston; a few were created by Peabody while in partnership with Alexander Hesler in Chicago; and others were taken by Hesler and other photographers. Also included are views of Peabody with his camera equipment in the outdoors, views of Peabody's studio in Pasadena, oversize group photographs of Peabody's tenth reunion at Dartmouth College, and the interior of "Car 159" (Peabody's private car on the Boston and Maine Railroad). The family photographs include images of Dora and Mildred in Massachusetts, and many images of Mildred--at summer camp on Lake Champlain in Vermont, with friends, and at various national parks. Peabody's house at 800 Prospect Boulevard in Pasadena is represented, as is his sailboat, the Venture. Two photograph albums describe a trip taken by Peabody, his wife, and friends to the north, south, and middle forks of the King's River circa 1900. Other family images include a group photograph of Peabody's father's fiftieth Dartmouth reunion and a portrait of Peabody's Aunt Helen.
    Peabody's New England photographs consist exclusively of city and landscape views. Included are stereograph views of Rosemary Hall in Greenwich, Connecticut and Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts; historic sites in and around Boston; the Massachusetts coast; New Hampshire; the coast of Maine; Lake Champlain and Mallett's Bay in Vermont; and images of the Boston and Maine Railroad trains and ferries. Many of these images include Dora and Mildred Peabody; many were published in Picturesque New England (box 50); and many have identifications written by Peabody on the verso.
    Peabody's work in Western Canada consists entirely of photographs of the Canadian Rockies in the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. Included are various mountains, mountain ranges, glaciers, and lakes in Banff National Park, Glacier National Park, and Yoho National Park. Some of the photographs were taken for the Detroit Publishing Company and have imprinted copyright information; others bear Peabody's copyright.
    Peabody's images of the Western United States' national parks and monuments depict Yellowstone National Park, the Teton Mountains, and Shoshone Canyon and Buffalo Bill Dam; Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park; the Grand Canyon; Yosemite National Park and assorted national parks and monuments in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico; Death Valley; Canyonlands National Park and Glacier National Park; Hoover Dam; the Snake River in Idaho; Ship's Rock in New Mexico; Monument Valley; and San Xavier del Bac Mission. Some of the images were produced by Spence Air Photos and Charles F. Lummis.
    Views of California include street scenes and buildings in central Los Angeles; Hollywood; Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley; Long Beach; Avalon Bay; the Mojave Desert; northern California; Riverside County; the San Bernardino Mountains; San Diego County; San Francisco and vicinity; Santa Barbara County; Ventura County; the California Missions; and unidentified California landscapes, residences, and ocean views.
    Images of Mexico consist of sights and churches in Mexico City, Zacatecas, Guanajuato, Taxco, Guadalajara, Vera Cruz, Cordova, Celaya, Cholula, Chapultepec, Puebla, Tepozotlan, Cuernavaca; Mounts Orizaba and Popocatepetl; and various miscellaneous images. Some of these were published in Sylvester Baxter's Spanish Colonial Architecture in Mexico.
    Peabody's European images are primarily in two photograph albums, one of Great Britain, the second of France and Switzerland. The Great Britain album contains images of London; Stratford-upon-Avon; and cathedrals in Peterborough, Lincoln, York, and Chester. The France album contains images of Paris (specifically Notre Dame Cathedral); Chartres, Amiens, and Rheims cathedrals; and Lucerne and the Swiss Alps.
    Native American images depict members of the Navajo, Hopi and Papago tribes; examples of Navajo architecture; Walpi and Oraibi, two Hopi communities; and miscellaneous images.
    Peabody's studio work is documented by portraits in boudoir photograph format. These include portraits of women, men, women and children, and children.
    The collection includes photographs of a number of architectural plans and renderings. These include work by architects Allison and Allison, Buchanan and Brockway, Foss Designing and Building Company, Hubert Frohman and Harold H. Martin, Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, Elmer Grey, Myron Hunt, and Withey and Davis; engineers W.P. Shepherd and Herbert A. Hamm; and landscape architect Paul G. Thiene.
    Other images include plants and animals; images of students at work in a classroom; copies of daguerrotypes and paintings; and photographs of the Handy Stereopticon.
    Peabody's published work is represented by three texts. Picturesque New England, published by or for the Boston and Maine Railroad, contains photomechanical views of numerous mountains, lakes, rivers, the seashore, and historic and "picturesque" sites in New England. The Fair City contains 49 original photographs of selected buildings and attractions of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition "photographed, enlarged and printed by Henry G. Peabody." Glimpses of the Grand Canyon of Arizona contains text and reproductions of Peabody's photographs.
    The manuscript material that accompanies Peabody's photographs and negatives provides background information on the photographer's travels, professional interests, and commercial output. It consists of ledgers and negative lists; commercially published catalogs; correspondence; ephemera; and materials collected by Robert Weinstein. The ledgers and negative lists record information about Peabody's negatives, such as negative number, size, title/subject, and copyright date. The negative lists detail negatives for some of the national parks and monuments in the Western United States, and the Canadian Rockies. The catalogs were published by Peabody and list the slides (lantern and film), manuals, and films that made up his Swastika Educational Series. The correspondence consists of letters to and from Henry Peabody and various businesses and individuals (including the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway; Bell and Howell Company; Dartmouth College; Encyclopedia Britannica; Ideal Pictures Corporation; National Geographic Magazine; the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities; and the Society for Visual Education). Much of it concerns sales of Peabody's slides and albums to private individuals, schools, and museums; technical discussions about the projection of his films and slides; sales, purchases, and discussions of projection equipment; and slide and film production. The ephemera consists of a scrapbook created by Henry Peabody, a brochure about the Grand Canyon published by Gates Tours, and scripts for Peabody's lectures on El Camino Real. The scrapbook documents Peabody's youth and career and contains, among other items, catalogues of Peabody's work; the slide narration for Peabody's lecture on Zion National Park; a floor plan of his Boylston Street (Boston) studio; subscription announcements for Peabody's publications; price lists for Peabody's services and for photographic equipment; Peabody lecture programs; an advertisement and brochure for the sale of Peabody's house at 640 North Prospect Boulevard, Pasadena; ephemeral materials; Swastika Educational Series brochures and catalogs; and Peabody's Christmas cards (featuring his hand-colored photographs). The Gates Tours brochure, What the Tourists Say, contains quotes about the experience of seeing the Grand Canyon. The El Camino Real scripts are Peabody's narrations written to accompany his slide lectures. The materials collected by Robert Weinstein include autobiographical and biographical material on Peabody; notes and photocopies created by Weinstein; an essay on Peabody; letters to and from Weinstein; and some of Peabody's lecture scripts.
