1Title:  Andrew Kraffert Photographs     
 Creator:  Kraffert, Andrew 
 Dates:  1860-1950 
 Abstract:  Andrew Kraffert (1874-1958) was born in Titusville, Pennsylvania, and came to Cleveland, Ohio, in 1904 to work at the Cleveland Leader. He served as the staff photographer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer from 1908 until his retirement in 1953. The collection consists of photographs taken by Andrew Kraffert during his career as Plain Dealer news photographer. They cover a wide range of subjects including sporting events, especially baseball, American presidents and other political figures, prominent personalities, major events in Cleveland social and political life, including crimes and disasters, parades and celebrations, political campaigns, visits of numerous public figures, etc., as well as views of Cleveland structures and portraits of groups and individuals. The collection is especially useful to the study of early 20th century baseball, with many images of baseball players and action shots of the 1919 and 1920 World Series. The presidential photographs include presidents from William McKinley to Harry Truman, as well as an image of Abraham Lincoln, ca. 1860. There are also photos of many national and international figures. This collection also is significant for the study of Cleveland history as it helps to document events in Cleveland during the early part of the twentieth century. The crime scene photographs and disaster shots are particularly valuable to researchers.
