History of the Collection
The W.E.B. Du Bois Library holds a copy of John Thomson's The Straits of Malacca, Indo-China, and China (Call no. DS507 .T49 1875a) inscribed to Frank L. Wilson "with love from S.H.C." The handwriting in this volume appears to match that on the images, although the initials change to S.H.W., perhaps as the result of a marriage.
This collection was originally housed with the Woodbury (PH 3) and Beato Collections (PH 4), which suggests that all may have been acquired by S.H.W. and family while they lived in Indonesia.
