Scope and Contents note
Photographs depicting people and historically or geologically significant sites. Most of the collection consists of images of Norway, particularly the Sami people, towns, and reindeer. It also includes oversized postcards depicting temple remains in Agrigento (Girgenti), Italy, color images of Biblical locations in Jerusalem and Palestine, and images of "The Beehive" and Bow River in Canada. Most of the images are not dated, though some of the photographs of Norway were made circa 1892.

Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
Leonora Jackson (1880-1969) was a female concert violinist who performed at venues around the world. Mrs. Grover Cleveland and George Vanderbilt sponsored her violin training in Chicago, Paris, and Berlin until Jackson made her debut in 1896. She was awarded the Mendelssohn State Prize by the Prussian government in 1898. In 1915 she married Dr. William Duncan McKim (1855-1935), a member of a wealthy Baltimore merchant family. Jackson and McKim traveled extensively and amassed a large art collection, large portions of which she donated to the Smithsonian and the Maryland Historical Society.
