Dr. McCleery Lobo Wolves Digital Archive

Jerry and Her Friend [Photograph]

Description

This photograph depicts three wolves - two of which are standing and one of which is lying down - at Dr. McCleery's lobo wolf park, located within the town limits of Kane, PA. According to the caption, one of these wolves is Jerry (the caption suggests that Jerry was female, but he was actually male). Jerry was mated with Diana his whole life, so one of the other wolves in this photo may be Diana. This photograph is included in the photo album of Margaret R. Jones and is captioned "Jerry + Her Friend."

The photo album of Margaret R. Jones includes two notes. One indicates that the captions were hand-written by Frank Hall, and the other note reads “This album was presented to me, on (Dec. 25) 1924, from Mrs. Spitz." (“Spitz” is a best guess at what the handwriting says.)

This photograph was taken between 1921 (when Dr. McCleery obtained his first wolf) and 1924 (when the photo album was presented to Margaret R. Jones).
