Scope and Content: The Annalee Davis Thorndike Photograph Collection consists of photograph albums containing family images, with pictures of Thorndike’s children and relatives. Another album contains images of Thorndike’s mother, Doris (Ladd) Davis, and her friends and life at Dana Hall School (Wellesley, MA), 1909-1911. A baby book of Annalee Davis Thorndike kept by her mother between 1915 and 1918 provides information about the life of a young child in early 20th-century New Hampshire. It contains accounts of the baby’s development and activities along with numerous photos, greeting cards, and some locks of hair. For example, there is a description of her first birthday party, with photos of the one-year-old guests, their mothers, and a list of gifts. There are 5 audio cassette tapes of conversations with Thorndike, perhaps from the exhibit of her dolls at the New Hampshire Historical Society in 1999. There are no photographs of Annalee Dolls; the manufacturing facility in Meredith, NH; workers; or offices.
