Perkins, Samuel Elliot III. Collection, 1896-1938. P 0053. Approximately 200 black-and-white snapshots made or collected by Samuel Elliot Perkins III between 1896 and 1938. The photographs have a documentary quality. Perkins made photographs of soldiers departing for World War One, and attempted to capture bicycle racers in motion. He successfully photographed the racers standing beside their bicycles. Perkins annotated a number of photographs with the month, date, time, and prevailing weather conditions. Bridges, parks, and views of the White River are featured in snapshots of Indianapolis. Perkins also photographed automobiles, particularly on journeys with this family across Indiana. It may have been on these journeys that he photographed covered bridges and natural features in Adams, Wayne, Washington, Franklin, and Brown Counties. A small number of photographs are affixed to the verso of letters addressed to Perkins. Samuel Elliot Perkins IV donated the collection to the Indiana Historical Society in 1975.

Servants who worked for these families pose for individual snapshots, and with their employers. Other photographs on contact sheets include views of Indianapolis residences, and parades sponsored by the Indianapolis German community. Interior and exterior views of cottages exist as individual copy prints, and are not identified. Unidentified color photographs dating from the late 1970s show children and teenagers water-skiing, swimming, and sunbathing at Lake Maxinkuckee. The subjects may be members of the Rasmussen family. Manuscript material in this collection consists of a typewritten memoir on family and social life at Lake Maxinkuckee written by Mrs. James Rasmussen in the late 1970s. “Eighteen Ninety-Four to Nineteen Ninety-Four” contains anecdotes concerning the Schnull and /vonnegut_ Nanette_Schnull.htm families.
