This fascinating archive hails from Ruth's Nova Scotia hunting trip with Bill Lovitt, Jack Matthews, Louis Vacon, Hedly Doty and Bob Edge. It was Doty and Edge who were the respective photographer and writer for a subsequent Outdoor Life magazine article in March of '38, and it was presumably one of those two men to whom these 8 scrapbook album pages (7-1/2" x 10-3/4") belonged. There are 21 original snapshots in all, each measuring 3-3/8" x 4-1/2", and Ruth is featured in 15 of them. Scenes include the Bambino carrying a buck, lounging by a fireplace, relaxing, cooking, wrangling an ox, posing with a log like a bat (photo torn at bottom), playing pinochle (3), holding a shotgun (2), and posing in front of a car with the week's kill (4). Accompanied by the Outdoor Life piece and other related articles. Collection rates EX overall with rippling due to the vintage adhesive.
