Trudy Richmond Collection

Identifier: AR 10722

Scope and Content Note

The Trudy Richmond Collection contains several snapshots, portrait postcards, and photo albums documenting life with her family in Kassel and her travels to France and Israel during the 1930s and 1940s. After 1940, much of the photographs depict her life with husband Morris Richmond in New Jersey and their travels. A large number of family portraits, many of which appear to date from the turn of the century, may portray Golderg's ancestors and relatives. Non-photographic materials include personal papers from her time in Holland (circa 1935-1937), naturalization documents for her American citizenship, correspondence with the German government pertaining to reparations, and a limited amount of personal correspondence and postcards. Some of the latter category dates to the nineteenth century and presumably also was inherited from her family.
