Scope and content
File consists of one photograph album titled "L'Arche Portfolio" which was created by Peter Weiskel in December 1985 and holds 104 photographs. These photographs were taken by Weiskel while he was visiting with Henri Nouwen in France at L'Arche Trosly-Breuil. Nouwen and Weiskel also possibly took a few excursions together in France, as some photographs are not from L'Arche Trosly-Breuil. The photographs are labelled sequentially with numbered labels, although some labels are missing.
Photographs in the album depict the town of Trosly, L'Arche Trosly-Breuil grounds and buildings; core members and assistants at L'Arche Trosly-Breuil, including some photographs at a gathering; some photographs of meals at various houses of L'Arche Trosly-Breuil; photographs of Pere Thomas, Pauline Vanier, Jean Vanier, Henri Nouwen, Xavier le Pichon and Brigitte le Pichon; and photographs of Morienval and Ourscamp.
