Browse This Collection

The Esther M. Erickson YWCA Photograph Collection consists of professional and personal photographs of and taken by Erickson. The collection also includes postcards of places where she worked and visited, including Minneapolis, Wichita, and Honolulu. The photographs document YWCA programs and activities that included Erickson, her colleagues, friends, and YWCA members. The known dates of the collection are from 1902 to 1917, but most photographs are undated. Erickson worked for the YWCA when it became a pioneer in providing women's health initiatives, basic life skills, and social and cultural enrichment.

Women lined up at Halloween party in gym, circa 1900-1920.
