Photographs of Walt Whitman admirers in the USA and Canada

Scope and Content

This sub-series is comprised of photographs of various families and individuals from the USA and Canada, principally the Traubels, the Bains, and John Burroughs. All the subjects have Whitman connections, and a number of them carried on a long-term correspondence with Wallace and Minnie Whiteside during which photographs were exchanged. Also included is a print of Dr R.M. Bucke, Whitman's early biographer.
