The 32 images in the collection are scanned from Peter Luttmer’s personal collection. The images are mostly portrait photos of Dunsmuir family members. Specifically, grandmother, Laura (Surles) Dunsmuir (1858-1937), mother, Kathleen Dunsmuir Humphreys, father, Selden Humphreys (1880-1960), and sisters Jill and Judith. Various other formal and informal family photos are included.
