Dr. McCleery Lobo Wolves Digital Archive

"Bobbie" and Vivian [Photograph]

Description

This photograph depicts a woman named Vivian and Robert Jones Jr. ("Bobbie") standing by the fence at Dr. McCleery's lobo wolf park, located within the town limits of Kane, PA. A man and a wolf can be seen in the far distance in the wolf pens. This photograph is included in the photo album of Margaret R. Jones and is captioned "'Bobbie' + Vivian."

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).
