Photographs

Photographs in this sub-series document Farrar’s extended family in Cattaraugus and New York state from about the 1870s to the early 1900s. There is a large collection of nineteenth century Carte de Visites and Portrait Cards of his parents, T.J. Farrar and Marie Farrar, and their relatives. Some are identified while others are not. Also among these photographs are images of the various Farrar homes in Cattaraugus, views of group outings such as picnics and parties ca. 1890s, as well as general views of Cattaraugus. Also found among these older photographs are three photographs of skeletons or skulls. The photographer of these experimental type images is unknown but is most probably a member of the Farrar family or C.B. Farrar himself. These photographs are grouped and arranged according to subject as outlined above.

This sub-series also includes photographs of Dr. Farrar’s immediate family, mainly his children, Evelyn and Clarice, and his first wife, Evelyn, before 1940. There are also two photographs of Joan Farrar, his second wife. There are numerous professional portraits and extensive snapshots documenting his early life with Evelyn, his various domiciles and the girls’ childhood. Also included in this series are portraits of Farrar from his early childhood up to around the 1950s. Included are portraits by Milne Studio of Toronto, Frederick William Lyonde and Sons of Toronto, and a reproduction of a painting of Dr. Farrar by artist, Archie Barns. Formal portraits are filed by person at the beginning while snapshots are filed afterwards and are grouped by subject and roughly sorted by date.

  • June 1981 - April 1995, predominant January 1989 - December 1994
  • Part of Henri Nouwen fonds

Sub-series consists of material sent by Nouwen's personal accountant (Joe Sarno) to Nouwen's office at Daybreak in January 1996. Includes the 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994 income tax returns and supporting documentation. Also includes permanent reference material from Nouwen's retirement accounts, health insurance, 1995 Visa statements, and the US Internal Revenue Service.
Joe Sarno was Nouwen's personal accountant from the mid-1970s until April 1995. He was based in Connecticut and became Nouwen's accountant when Nouwen was at Yale Divinity School. Sarno was responsible for Nouwen's income tax returns, American bank accounts, credit cards, and retirement funds. It is assumed that he was responsible for the bulk of Nouwen's financial activities before Nouwen's move to L'Arche Daybreak in 1987. However, since legislation only requires records be kept for seven years, the majority of the records he sent to Daybreak only go back to 1989. Completing Nouwen's 1994 tax return was Sarno's last responsibility as Nouwen's accountant.
According to correspondence found in box 248 file 1438, Sarno sent two boxes of material to Nouwen's office containing income tax records and permanent reference material. The material was found in large manilla envelopes with Sarno's handwriting on the outside describing the envelopes' contents. The envelopes were bound with elastics and did not appear to have been opened since being sent to Nouwen's office in January 1996.
