Title [Group of Women on Porch]
Studio Rose Studio
Description A group of women on a porch. Three identifications of the group are offered on the verso. One note suggests that this photograph shows Jenny Hibben (née Davidson), wife of John Grier Hibben, hosting wives of the Princeton University Class of 1882 in 1902. Another note suggests that it shows a group of Garden Club Ladies including Mrs. J.P. Morgan in a black hat and ribbon, possibly at the Peacock Inn for luncheon. A third note suggests that the photograph shows a group of Princeton University faculty wives.
