Inclusive dates: c. 1900-1991


Scope Notes
 

The collection is comprised of 17 images (14 copy negatives & 14 copy prints; 4 images are on a single neg) copied in conjunction with the Historic Resource Development Project grant for the exhibit “The Beat Goes On… Music in the Quad Cities Since 1830.” 15 of the images pertain to the Col (Coliseum) Ballroom on West 4th Street, Davenport, including both exteriors and interior views of the building, events (e.g. the “Platter Hop,” the TV show “Good Guy a Go-Go,” and pre-Bix Jazz Festival cocktail party), and copies of newspaper advertisements for events at the Col. Other images include the Hi Morgan Orchestra (at Marian, IA) and Don Wachal’s wedding dance (at Baldwin, IA).


All images were copied from the originals in the possession of the donor, Don Wachal.

Walter Collection 1992-124

Inclusive dates: 1929-1939

Scope Notes
 

This collection is comprised primarily of group portraits of workers at their work sites. All photos appear to have been taken by Arthur Walter and his wife Emma. Virtually all of the images were taken in the Midwest. The Walters seem to have been itinerant professional photographers. Judging from the information on the photos themselves the Walters may have been based in the following cities during the years listed below:

Washington, DC       c. 1929-1932

St. Paul, MN         c. 1932

Fort Wayne, IN       c. 1933

Newark, OH           c. 1933-1934

Peoria, IL           c. 1934-1935

Davenport, IA        1935

Clinton, IA          c. 1936

Davenport, IA        c. 1937-1939

Art and Emma Walter are listed in the 1935 Davenport City Directory with a residence at 1822 West 1st Street and in the 1937-1939 Davenport City Directories with a residence at 1954 Rockingham Road. The Walters are listed as “commercial photographers” under their personal entry, but are not listed as photographers in the business listings of the directory.

Note: Several of the original negatives in this collection were cellulose nitrate negatives. If prints existed for these nitrate negatives the original negatives were destroyed (these included #9, 98, 101, 177, 263, 361, 389). Those nitrates that did not have prints were separated for safety reasons and will be reproduced in the future (these include #17, 55, 84, 91, 95, 96, 100, 102, 119, 120, 298, 382a,b, 383, 384, 385a,b, 386a,b, 387a,b, 388a,b).
