by Gamble, Jeanne M.
Harvard University, 2008. Hardcover. VG+. Thesis. Red library buckram, 363 leaves, 85 illus. Thesis. Focuses on the work of Salem-born author and photographer Mary H. Northend (1850-1926). "This thesis project researches, analyzes, and documents the photographic collection of Mary Harrod Northend, an author and photographer working in the Salem, Massachusetts area from 1904 to 1926, and presents this material in an exhibition catalog. The primary resources investigated include the photographic negatives, prints, and manuscripts contained in the Northen Collection held by Historic New England. In addition to this material, the published works of Mary Northend, as well as those of her contemporaries will be used to illustrate Northend's photographs of the home, work, and leisure environments, as well as those of the larger community. The goal of this exhibition is to gain a greater understanding of the period in which Northend worked. This period, called the Progressive Era by historians, is exemplified by the often contradictory ideas and reform efforts prevalent during the period." (abstract).
