About the Collection

The Pearlstine-Strauss Family Papers Collection largely consists of photographs (1860s – 1970s), but also contains correspondences, newspaper clippings, Edwin Pearlstine’s World War I records, and genealogical information for the Pearlstine, Strauss, Hyams, Weinberg, Hornik, and Felsenthal families. The digitized portion of this collection currently consists of photographs.

Images include I.M Pearlstine (1860s-1890s), Hyman Pearlstine (1880s-1920s), Esther “Edie” Strauss Pearlstine (1880s-1930s), Edwin and Milton Pearlstine as children, Edwin S. Pearlstine (includes photos from World War I training at Camp Sevier, S.C.), and images (1904-1970s) of Mary Pearlstine Hornik. The collection also includes a carte de visite album with images of the Hyams, Cohen, and Pearlstine family (1860s-1960s).

Portions of this collection were digitized and made freely available online through the generous support of the Council on Library and Information Resources.
