Scope and Contents note
Scope and Contents note
Lantern slides and correspondence collected by Lloyd G. Kirby during his time in the Philippines related to his lecture concerning the Philippine economy. Drawing from these photographs, Kirby delivered a lecture on the Philippine economy (circa 1937), a portion of which is available in this collection. The photographs document architecture and people including the Bagobos, Ifugaos, Igorots, Kalingas, Moros, and Negritos. Additionally, there are some personal slides that depict children and friends in the Philippines or the United States. The papers include financial records, correspondence, and notes concerning the Philippine economy and the creation and duplication of the photographs.
