Scope and Content

Fonds consists of prints of formal individual and group photographs of members of the Ziegler family and others, perhaps related, produced by a variety of studios in Canada and the United States, mostly in Berlin [Kitchener] and Waterloo, Ontario. Only a few prints bear inscriptions indicating subjects by name, and most of these are clearly members of the Ziegler family: Gordon and Harvey Ziegler, sons of Henry A. Ziegler and his wife Anna; and their cousins Lizzie Ann, Delphina, and Edna Schaefer, daughters of Louisa Ziegler and William H. Schaefer. There is one photograph of Lydia (Ziegler?) Huehnergard, possibly their aunt.

Represented in this fonds are photographic prints from studios in Ontario in Berlin (Green and Company; C. Schneuker; Seiler), Waterloo (A.C. Moyer; Heimbecker; I.W. Wilson; Edwards), Elmira (Levi Vost), and Toronto (W. Mathers; J.J. Milliken). Other studios were located in Boissevain, Manitoba (J.E. Miers), West Superior, Wisconsin (Berryman) and Le Mars, Iowa (Dabb; Brown).

A number of the photographs are in the form of cartes de visites produced by local photographers in Berlin (D.G. Denison; Lundy and Wilder), Waterloo (Lundy and Company; Heimbecker; D. Henzel; P. Reichert; I.W. Wilson), and Elmira (W. Marshall; S. Fischer).

Fonds includes printed funeral card for Elizabeth Ziegler, Henry's mother, who died in October 1896.
