This collection consists mostly of photographs taken when Josephine Shawhan was a student at EKSNS. Most of the photos are of friends, but there are also a number of photos of classes or class excursions she attended as a student. Several photos are from Everett and were taken at Transylvania University. There are also photos from a trip to Chicago around the same time period.
