Boyle Photograph Collection

The Boyle Photograph Collection consists of photographic negatives taken by Katie and William Boyle of the Trinidad CA area from 1966 through the early 1990s. As a school teacher in Trinidad, Katie photographed local historical photo collections covering the area’s history, including local Indians, whaling, lighthouse keepers, lumbering and transportation. In addition, she photographed local events including the Trinidad bicentennial celebration. Her husband Bill worked for Hammond Lumber Company in Crannell, later Georgia Pacific, and took many photos documenting logging operations and practices in the 1960s and 1970s. 1,795 negatives have been entered into the Humboldt Room Photograph Database with scanned images.
