Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Urban Pope Hadley was born on December 19, 1852 in Machias, Maine. Hadley married Harriet (Hattie) Florence Collette, a young schoolteacher from Vermont. Having been disinherited by his mother, who had wanted him to marry a "society girl," Hadley moved west, traveling in his horse and buggy and taking photographs that he hoped to be able to sell.

The Hadleys lived in Minnesota in the early 1880s, where their two sons were born, George in 1879, and Wallis in 1883. The family moved to Tacoma in 1884 and then on to Napavine where they lived for some time on a large ranch near Hattie's father. Hadley, however, couldn't support the mortgage on their new home, and after a few years in Napavine the Hadleys moved to Lynden, where Hadley set up a photo studio. Hattie, who had also become skilled at photography, helped out in the studio, enabling Hadley to run a small real estate business from the same location.

Later, Hadley relocated his business to Wickersham, where he lived until his death in October 1911.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The collection contains a number of portraits of individuals and groups, some of whom appear to be members of Hadley's family; Hadley's wife Hattie is identified or recognizable in several of the portraits. The portraits are largely undated, as are several landscapes and town views. Images of logging operations depict Larson Lumber Company in Bellingham, Van Horn Lumber in Orting and Crofford Brothers Lumber Plant in Mountain View, Washington, circa 1900.

The photographs also include individual and group portraits of Nooksack Indians.
