BIOGRAPHY

Vance B. Erickson was a member of the Stanford University class of 1924, earning his a.b. in June. He married Alberta Curtner, a member of the class of 1925, in September 1926. Erickson returned to Stanford for graduate work, earning his MA degree in Chemistry in 1940.

SCOPE AND CONTENT

This collection documents Erickson's undergraduate days at Stanford, 1920 through 1924, with a few items dating from 1925. Most of the collection consists of negatives, presumably from photographs taken by Erickson. There are also photoprints and postcards, many of which are Berton Crandall images. Subjects include the Frosh-Soph Tie-Up, Roughs' Day, Big Game bonfires, El Capitan Club, dormitory rooms in Encina Hall, the stadium, the cactus garden, Sand Hill road, and campus views. There are also several images of Palo Alto, including a student rooming house. Students pictured include Everett Bailey, Vance Erickson, Donald Harger, George Harman, Russell Pearson, Burt Procter, William Hyde Irwin, Daniel Gage, William R. Gage, Burton A. Noble, Harold H. Strain, Alberta Curtner, and Paul Wilbur.

Arrangement note

The prints and negatives were kept separate and arranged alphabetically by subject. The negative number with each negative is from Erickson's inventory, now in folder 103.
