It was apparently made from Sadie Stadiem’s copy of the original photograph. The name of the photographer, E. D. Sparrow, of Kinston, NC, appears in the lower right corner of the print.
On the back of the original photographic print is written the admonition: “Lest I forget” and the names of the girls and their unidentified nurse. Reading from left to right, they are:
- Amie Jordan Parham
Carrie Mae Dunn
Mary Emma Bizzel
Edna Tilman (Nurse)
The photograph was a gift of Fred and Susan Block, of Wilmington, NC, 4 February 2002 (Mss #869.1.a). You may access the finding aid to the Fred and Susan Block Collection at: Manuscript Collection 869.
