- Scope and Content: Photographs related to the wholesale and retail mercantile business Gross, Kelly and Company and its predecessor firms. The bulk of the images were made between 1902 and 1954, the years in which Gross, Kelly and Company was in existence. Photos that predate these show buildings, personnel, and the operations of Otero, Sellar and Company and of Gross, Blackwell and Company. Photos related to the company are grouped under buildings, work, employees, and events. There are many photos of Gross and Kelly family members, in particular Daniel T. Kelly (including a 1903 group portrait of a boys' football team), Margaret Gross Kelly, and Caroline L. Kelly. Other photos of individuals (non-family) are arranged under identified and unidentified persons. A number of photos of the Hillbilly Club Camp in the California redwood grove were taken by the San Francisco Studio of Gabriel Moulin. Identified members include Daniel T. Kelly; Herbert Hoover appears in one shot.

This Month in New Mexico History
|November 16, 1821 - William Becknell, under forced escort by Mexican troops, arrives at Santa Fe. New Mexicans, who are still celebrating their newly won independence from Spain, quickly purchase all of his goods, which he initially intended to trade with the Indians. This marked the birth of the Santa Fe Trail, originating from Independence, Mo. Eventually, many traders privately complain to each other that they lose much profit by having to bribe local officials with goods or cash.|
