Description

The Kammin family lived in the farmhouse where the glass plate negatives were found from the 1920s-1930s. William Kammin (1902-1988) had removed thirteen glass plate
negatives from the attic and taken them with him when he moved. He loaned these negatives to Everett Block to make prints. Those negatives were donated to the archives from the Kammin estate
and have been incorporated into the Block collection. The name J. J. Fisher is scratched into the back of
two of these negatives. Pictured in front of the house. Back row left to right: William, Frances, Elmer and Arthur Kammin. Front row left to right: John, Sr., Anna and John Kammin.
