- US US-almoca The John Dowe Collection
- ca. 1848-2007
The John Dowe Collection consists of family correspondence, financial and legal records, photographs and postcards sent and received by the Dowe family, scrapbooks, publications, and ephemera. Most of the collection’s document-based records date from circa 1900 to 2007. The scrapbooks range from the 1880s to roughly the mid-twentieth century. The photographs begin in circa1870 and appear to end in the early-to-mid 2000s. The Dowe Collection especially documents the history and activities of the Dowe family in Montgomery, Alabama, as well as their travels throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. It especially documents much of John Dowe’s life, from his birth in 1911, to his death in 2007.
