About this collection

The Gertrude Fitzgerald Photographs, PH025, images consist primarily of photographs taken by Gertrude Fitzgerald of her family life and people and places related to the travel and work of her husband. The first series, photographs taken by Gertrude Fitzgerald, contains the earliest images. This series consists of photographs of places in Mexico City, mostly Chapultepec or the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Images of the Fitzgerald children in the mountainous town of Madera, Chihuahua are included, as well as photographs of workers in the Pearson Lumber Company near Madera. Also in this series are photographs of Federal troops preparing for or returning from military actions in the Mexican Revolution (about 1910). This series concludes with a small group of photographs of landscapes and ruins near Casas Grandes in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. Other images show scenes from the El Paso, Texas area, including local landmarks and military life at Fort Bliss as well as some photos from Mesilla, New Mexico. Series II includes photographs not taken by Gertrude Fitzgerald, which are of the mines in Hurley and Santa Teresa, New Mexico and panoramic shots of Mexican revolutionaries. Series III contains photographs of the Fitzgerald family. These images include family photographs, ephemeral material and a large collection of postcards of El Paso, Texas. The last series is a selection of framed photographs, mostly of the Mexican revolution. The physical makeup of the collection consists mainly of large format negatives and four glass plates along with original photographs.
