Biographical Sketch: Mary Grace Canfield was a native of Vermont and the wife of the Rev. Harry Lee Canfield (1860-1942), a Universalist minister working in North Carolina. The Canfield Collection consists of 246 black and white prints, most of which are mounted on cardboard. The photographs appear to date from the 1920s and are probably the work of Mary Canfield. The images show historic homes, farm buildings, churches, street scenes, Confederate veterans, gristmills, and monuments throughout North Carolina.
Related Material: A photographic album created by Mrs. Canfield is filed in the North Carolina Collection vault under the call number VC917 C22. This album contains photographic prints of some of the same subjects as those in the Canfield Collection.
