Title Jesse E. Matheson notes
Catalog Number FF-70
Object Name Photograph
Description Notes by Jesse E. Matheson covering items FF-7 thru FF-119. Jesse was a fellow school-girl and life-long friend of Rhoda Agatha Rindge. She bequeathed photos of her times together with Rhoda to her son Robert Norris, who allowed us to scan them in 2009 for unconditional use. This constitutes a very valuable record of ranch life in the early 1900s. Bob's father (Robert DeWitt Norris, Jesse's husband after 1919) played a major role in landscaping the Adamson House. This commission doubtless came about because of the already strong friendship of Jesse not only with Rhoda, but both the Rindge and Adamson families.
