Family Photos

This page consists of just three photographs, arrange diagonally across the page. In the upper left, a young man, most likely Merrick himself, stands with two young women, with the tower of Johnson Chapel visible in the background. Next, a newspaper clipping captioned "Charles Merrick: Wilbraham Boy to Be Class Orator at Academy Exercise." Charles was James's younger brother, and went on to attend Amherst in the class of 1924. Last, an unidentified photo of an older gentleman relaxing in the woods - Mr. Merrick, perhaps?
