Back to Collection Guides Page


Collection Number

76.8 and 76.8b.1-40


This collection was likely assembled by Marie Scott, whom took photographs of California Mission in the 1940’s. The collection was donated by Janet Carter of Laguna Niguel, CA in 1976 to the Santa Cruz County Historical Museum (now the Santa Cruz MAH). The prints were slated for exhibit in the Fall of 1976 by Albert Schadel, the County Museum Coordinator at that time. The Photo Album in this collection was donated by Janet Carter, at a later date, though it is not certain when.
