Collection Title:

Annie Walker sketchbook and photograph collection

Repository:University of Oregon Libraries, Special Collections and University Archives
Summary:Annie Walker was the daughter of John Pugh Walker and Mary Ann Myer Walker who traveled from the California Gold Rush along the Applegate trail in 1853. Upon arrival to Oregon, the Walker family acquired property and resided in Ashland, Oregon. Annie Walker later married her cousin, James G. "Butler" Walker, both of whom invested their time in the maintenance of the Walker Ranch. The collection is comprised of two sketchbooks and fourteen photographs from the late 19th century to early 20th century pertaining to Annie (Anne Temperance) Walker, the Walker family, and the Walker family properties of Walker House and Walker Ranch in Ashland, Oregon. The two sketchbooks were produced between the years of 1878 and 1880 by Annie Walker, and feature her surroundings in Southern Oregon, including whiskey barrels, the ranch house, birds, plants, flowers, boats, the Klamath Mountains, and images of "White River," which is likely White Lake or Klamath Lake. The fourteen photographs depict the Walker House and Walker Ranch, members of the Walker family, including Annie Walker's four daughters, and a school class photo for Ashland High School in 1915.
