This collection has been scanned but to date there is no finding aid. However, there are several folders of photos that we would like to share. Many of the photos in the collection reflect the history of the Williams family in Lane and Douglas counties. Prominent surnames include Williams, Shook, Lamb, Larson, Leeson, and Gorrell. You can see the entire list of names and view the photos at the above links.

All of the information that we have about the photos is included on the list of photos. Some of the photos in our collection may be considered in the public domain. It is the responsibility of the researcher to determine copyright.
