Gladys G. Boyce Photograph Collection

 Collection
Identifier: P007

Collection Description

These eight photographs were purchased by the Cambridge Historical Commission from photographic dealer Josh Weisner on September 4, 2002. According to Mr. Weisner, they once belonged to Gladys G. Boyce.

Of the eight photographs in this collection, three are of girls’ basketball teams and the remaining five are landscapes. The basketball team photographs display several of the same individuals. It is likely that Gladys Boyce is one of these girls. More research may provide a positive identification. The landscape photographs are attributed to Ms. Boyce and are purported to be taken “out West.”
