Biographical/Historical Note

Julia Margaret Cameron was an English photographer whose work dated from 1864 to the 1870s; she was known especially for her portraits. Born and raised in India, she continued to live in Calcutta after her marriage in 1838 to the jurist Charles Hay Cameron; from 1846-1875 they lived in England, and then in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) until their deaths. Their son, Hardinge Hay Cameron, was private secrtary to Sir William Gregory, governor of Ceylon from 1872-77. He married Catherine Macintosh Macleod (known as Kitty) in 1879 or 1880, and later married Adeline Blake, daughter of George Pilkington Blake. Another son, Henry Herschel Hay Cameron, was also a photographer.

Scope and Content of Collection

The collection consists primarily of correspondence and personal papers, with some family photographs, and original watercolors and drawings. The material derives from the estate of Hardinge Hay Cameron, and the bulk of it concerns Hardinge Hay Cameron, his wives, and their families. The papers provide a glimpse of Julia Margaret Cameron's intellectual and artistic milieu, document her relationships with her husband and children, and present a view of late 19th and early 20th century British colonial life in Ceylon.

Letters sent to and received by Charles Hay and Julia Margaret Cameron include those sent by Charles to Julia discussing his 1850 trip to Ceylon (1850-1851) as well as a group sent by Julia to Hardinge Hay Cameron in which she expresses her worries for her son Charles Hay, and discusses her religious feelings, her grandchildren, the estates in Ceylon, and the family's financial situation (1871-1876). Other writings by Julia Margaret Cameron include a prayer written before the birth of her first child (1838) and an incomplete MS titled "Reminiscences" (1876).
