Narrative: Donated by Evelyn MacLean, the artifacts in this collection belonged to her husband Francis MacLean's (1915-1995) family. Francis's father was Captain Fred MacLean (1878-1957), who married Laura Mae Nickerson (1887-1964); together they had two sons Francis and his brother Clayton (1913-2004). Captain Fred MacLean also had a daughter, Helen from his first marriage (her mother Minnie passed away). the Field Glasses belonged to the Captain, and the crib was also purchased by him in 1905, in Boston and used by all 3 of his children. It eventually was passed down to Francis and used by his and Evelyn's 2 sons Edgar and David MacLean. the crib has not been used since, and had been put in storage.
