Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Willis Family Photography Collection is a genealogical compilation of ambrotypes, tintypes, Daguerreotypes, photographs, family papers, clippings, and correspondence. These three series, family photographs, family papers, and correspondence, highlight family members during momentous times in their lives – weddings, graduations, and family celebrations. The correspondence also underlines a significant time for Todd Willis as they focus on his courtship with Hester M. Beck and his time during WWII. This collection is a photo-essay; a family tree which features the Willis and Beck families as well as their relatives.
