Scope and Contents note:
Lantern slides and correspondence collected and created by Lloyd G. Kirby during his time in the Philippines and related to his lecture concerning the Philippine economy. Drawing from these photographs, Kirby delivered a lecture on the Philippine economy (circa 1937), a portion of which is available in this collection. The photographs document architecture and people including Bagobo, Ifugao, Igorot, Kalinga, Moro, and Negrito peoples. Additionally, there are a number of personal slides that depict children and friends in the Philippines or the United States. The papers include financial records, correspondence, and notes concerning the Philippine economy and the creation and duplication of the photographs.
Biographical/Historical note:
Born in Illinois in 1880, Lloyd G. Kirby was an educator for the Philippine Civil Service for about 15 years. He joined the civil service in June 1905 and settled in Suguegardo, where he worked as a teacher and then Superintendent of Schools for Cagayan and Isabela provinces (circa 1913-1919). Kirby returned to the United States in 1919 or sometime thereafter, and he settled in Michigan, where he married May M. Person in the 1920s.
