Content Note

The Esther M. Erickson YWCA Photograph Collection consists of professional and personal photographs of Erickson during her work for the YWCA and in her leisure time as well as postcards she collected of places where she worked and visited. The photographs document YWCA programs of physical and educational activities and social and cultural events in which Erickson, her colleagues, friends, and YWCA members participated. The known dates of the collection are from 1902 to1917; however, most photographs are undated. It was during the time of Erickson’s involvement in the YWCA organization that it became a pioneer in introducing women’s health initiatives and providing basic educational skills and social and cultural enrichment for working women.
