This scrapbook was compiled by San Diego resident G. Hamilton Hammon. Hammon, who was an artist and poet, included fair copies
of original manuscript poems, as well as striking handpainted vignettes of San Diego scenes. Several photographs are also
present. Most poems are dated and give a place of composition. Most places are in California; the last poem is from Sydney,
Australia, and dated 1911. Of particular interest is a handcolored photograph of "The Krishnamurti Camp, Ojai Valley, California,"
Artist and poet G. Hamilton Hammon was a resident of San Diego during the 1930s.
