A personal collection of Dr. William O. Field and his father, it consists of approximately 7,000 postcards documenting Europe and America from around 1895 to the 1950s. Strengths include steamships, railroads, travel related images, pre-World War I European politics, and views of European cities in the early twentieth century. One of the five original postcard albums in the collection was copied and the copies were made into a volume; it documents the European "Grand Tour" of Dr. Field's parents between 1899 and 1902.
