The Mary Hieronymous Smith Papers were separated from the Jimmy Taylor Photographs as they included personal letters written to her at Taylor's business address. The collection consists mostly of photographs of Mary with friends, many of which show a party culture most likely in Chicago. One letter provides insights into Christmas and family life in the late 1940s. The other letter includes a discussion of a young man's plans after college graduation at the same time period.
Only a portion of this collection has been digitized. See the Finding Aid for a description of the entire collection.
