Scope and content

Black and white photograph of about twenty students holding containers filled with recently picked strawberries and cherries in the fields of the school's Locust Street location. The school has occupied this location since 1910, but farming ceased in 1970. They are a mix of boys and girls of various ages and are standing in a field of strawberry plants. The boy kneeling in the lower right corner of the photograph is Edward Tillinghast Jr., the son of Edward Tillinghast Sr., Superintendent of the school from 1906-1922. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph reads: "OSSD deaf children picking strawberries and cherries - ca. 1915". OSSD stands for Oregon State School for the Deaf, the name of the school from 1913-1989.
