Cabinet photographs
Date:
1868-1897
Scope and Contents:
Cigar/cigarette cards and cabinet photographs portraying actors (male and female) from the late 19th century. The photographs are predominantly American actors but some English and French performers are also included. Some of the more prominent persons represented are Lulu Glaser, Francis Wilson, and Georgia Cayvan, plus others listed below.
Arrangement:
Divided into 3 series: Series 1: Cigar/Cigarette Cards, undated; Series 2: Cabinet Photographs, 1878-1897,and Miscellaneous, 1868-1892.
Biographical / Historical:
The cult of celebrity is not a 20th century phenomenon. In the latter part of the 19th century innovations in the use of photography as advertising spurned a new avenue of celebrity likeness-based souvenirs. Portraits of personalities from the stage who were previously portrayed in engravings and traditional portraiture were now available to an interested public in a more realistic and affordable form – the cigar/cigarette card included as an incentive in the purchase of a smoking product and cabinet photographs sold as souvenirs by theatrical promoters. These photographs depicted celebrities as well as scenes from plays in which they performed. They were avidly collected by a public interested in the personalities of minstrelsy, vaudeville and the legitimate theatre.

This collection was created, or acquired, by Daisy Templin (1874?-1956) of Alton, Illinois. Templin was an avid collector of Victoriana and filled the home (1605 Washington Avenue) of she and her brother, Roger P. Templin (1872?-?), with furniture, ceramics, bric-a-brac and all types of predominately Victorian ephemera. She wrote that ". . . whatever interested me I bought." Her brother was a former wholesale grocery salesman in St. Louis, MO. By the time of her death, Templin had contemplated donating much of her collection to the Smithsonian Institution. Her collection was willed to her brother who donated a sizable portion of the collection (over 1,000 items) to the museum in 1958. The home she and her brother shared was demolished to make way for a shopping center in 1961.
Provenance:
The collection was donated by Roger P. Templin in memory of his sister Daisy Templin in October 1958.

1883-1998; undated
Scope and Contents:
These materials comprise the largest portion of the collection and include advertisements for primarily Ivory Soap in North American newspapers, national periodicals, magazines, and grocery trade publications. Among these materials are lists of publications that advertised Protcter & Gamble standard products including Ivory soap flakes, White Naphtha soap and Crisco for a particular year. These materials constitute virtually a complete run of advertisements for Ivory standard products during this time period. Foreign language materials consist of Japanese advertisements for Hawaiian newspapers; French advertisements for Montreal newspapers; and Hebrew language, Italian, and Polish advertisements for New York newspapers. Procter & Gamble introduced many advertising innovations, including the use of color images as early as 1896, and the work of nationally known and lesser known illustrators, such as I. R. Wiles, K. R. Wireman, Elizabeth Shippen, Green Elliott, Jessie Wilcox Smith, J. C. Leyendecker, Stanford Briggs, George O'Neill, T. D. Skidmore, Dorothy Hope Smith and Maud Humphrey (actor Humphrey Bogart's mother). Many of the advertisments were signed by the artist. A 1949 Grace Kelly magazine advertisement, created when she was working as a model before entering show business, is noteworthy. Materials in boxes 31-35 are very fragile with a number of advertisements that are stuck together. Researchers must handle these materials with great care. The advertisements are arranged first in chronological order, then by size with later years also by publication type. In addition to the advertisements there is a point of purchase display, scrapbook and photographs of advertising designs found at the end of the series.
