Manuscript Monday: Bernice's Bears

Manuscript Monday: Bernice's Bears

It is a beautiful Monday in Denver, and this week Manuscript Monday has some of us coming out of hibernation.

Howdy blog readers!  This  week we take a look at some dangerous photographs!

Today I came across two photographs that struck me as...dangerous!  From the Bernice Miles Ward Photograph Collection, here are two photographs of bears and people, very close together.  In one image, a man reaches out to pet a bear in Yellowstone Park, with a cub trailing close behind.  

This collection, and many others, are available in the Western History & Genealogy department of the Central Library.

collection changes

There has been a change to the collection above! The Bernice Miles Ward Photo Collection has been absorbed into the Ina Sizer Cassidy and Bernice Miles Ward Papers.

Happy researching!
