SCOPE AND CONTENT
The Dan Crowe Collection contains 172 negatives that depict various people and places with a good portion of them depicting Coach LeRoy Sprankle and the Kingsport High School basketball team’s trips to Havana Cuba and Florida. The photos taken in Cuba and Florida were taken by Thomas McNeer, Jr. It is possible that the other negatives were also taken by McNeer but this has not been verified. Included are various photographs, most unidentified portraits. Included are several Thomas McNeer Studio Stamps and a scrapbook compiled by Thomas McNeer, Jr.
