Longfellow Family Photograph Collection

The Longfellow Family Photograph Collection holds photograph albums and loose photographs owned by or associated with members of the Longfellow family including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, his brother Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow Sr., and their wives and children. Professional portrait photographs in the carte-de-visite and cabinet card format comprise a large portion of the collection. Members of the family took photographs of their relatives and homes. Subjects include the Wadsworth-Longfellow House in Portland, ME, Wadsworth Hall in Hiram, ME, and the Stephen Longfellow House in Gorham, ME.

The collection is organized into four subcollections:

Family members owned most of the photographs made before 1920, which resided in the House until the National Park Service assumed control in 1972. The Longfellow House Trust and H.W.L. Dana also acquired materials including photographs, particularly copy photographs of portraits. The albums are arranged roughly in chronological order as most dates are approximated. Because of the greater problem of dating the photographs not in albums, those within a sub-series may not be not arranged chronologically.

While the Longfellow Family Photograph Collection comprises the largest single collection of photographs in the archives, there are many family images within other collections, notably the Henry W. Longfellow Family Papers, Charles Longfellow Papers, and Alice Longfellow Papers. H.W.L. Dana is believed to have removed photographs from albums and placed them in his research files, now in the H.W.L. Dana Papers. Consult their finding aids for additional photograph listings.

A full finding aid to the collection and item-level descriptions of photographs are available on request. Contact the park archivist by email or call (617) 491-1054.

Longfellow Family Photograph Collection (3007.001/002.001-#009)

Historical Note

The photographs of the Longfellow family are characteristic of the images held by other families of their times in many ways. The standard daguerreotype, ambrotype, and carte-de-visite and cabinet card images taken in photography studios are similar to others from the nineteenth century. The younger members of the family, like many others, recorded their excursions and comradeship in the comparatively cheap medium of tintype in the 1860s through 1880s. The platinum prints of Joseph Thorp Jr. (1852-1931), the cyanotype photographs by Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow Jr. (1854-1934) and his brother Richard (1864-1914) and the Kodak snapshots taken by their sister Mary King Longfellow (1852-1945) reflect the intense interest of amateur photographers in general. The distinction of this collection is the celebrity of its most famous member, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and the pride his family members expressed in him and in their shared ancestry.

Longfellow, like all his contemporaries, gave and received photographs as tokens of respect or affection. He kindly requested his very young nephew Richard King Longfellow (1864-1914) to send him a new one: “[Your Mama] showed me your photograph … when you get any more, you must send me one.” He asked distant friends to send him their likenesses to reestablish personal contact. Unlike most persons, his acquaintances also included royalty like the Emperor of Brazil who asked for more portrait photographs as a friend wished them and he was “unwilling to part with those he possess[ed].” Due to his fame however, “entire strangers” asked him for his photograph and he politely obliged. He had his photograph taken more often than other men due to this demand, joking about his pictorial ideal: “Decency and good looks before likeness, which is often very disagreeable.”

His works, family, and reputation became intertwined in the photographic medium. His daughter Alice Mary Longfellow (1850-1928) posed as a young Evangeline in Breton costume between her two sisters. The Thomas Buchanan Read portrait of his daughters was produced as a carte-de-visite as well as a print in response to its popularity as a representation of the “blue-eyed bandetti” in “The Children’s Hour.” Friends sent him images of Dante as he wrote his translation of the Divine Comedy.

As the generations passed, the family more keenly remembered their colonial forebears. Her granddaughters Elizabeth Longfellow Dodge (1856-1889) and Lucia Longfellow Barrett (1859-1940) donned Zilpah Wadsworth Longfellow’s empire-style gowns for a professional portrait. The ancestral homes of General Peleg Wadsworth in Hiram, Maine and that of Judge Stephen Longfellow in Gorham were photographed. Family members Mary King Longfellow and probably Joseph Gilbert Thorp Jr., the husband of Anne Allegra Longfellow, took series of Anne Longfellow Pierce (1810-1901) towards the end of her life in the family home, the Wadsworth-Longfellow house known affectionately as the “Old Original.”

Letters and diaries portray the closeness of the families of Henry and Alexander Longfellow to each other and to their childless siblings, Samuel, Mary Greenleaf, and Anne Pierce. The photographs amplify our understanding of these relationships. Many copies of their portraits given to one another are in this collection, and portraits of the same friends are in each other’s family albums. Amateur photographs and snapshots document shared yachting trips, summer vacations, and European travel.
