Farrington, Fannie, Photograph Album and Scrapbook, c. 1900-2002.

.75 cubic feet (3 boxes)

This collection contains a photograph album and scrapbook containing approximately 232 pictures of the Farrington family, the Mann family, and scenes documenting early Diboll social life. The records center on Fannie Farrington, a Southern Pine Lumber Company commissary worker who was also involved in numerous church groups, missions, and social programs that helped improved Diboll's moral atmosphere. Her husband Frank Farrington worked in the Southern Pine Lumber Company commissary from 1904-1908 and later served as Diboll's postmaster from 1908-1925.
