Administrative history

Custodial history

The binders containing the documents and photos were created while the Orange Home was still in operation. Janice McBain was the Executive Director of the Orange Home when it closed in 1997 and, transitioned to become the manager of Hayes Haven - a seniors' residence occupying the land where the girls' dormitory stood. Janice McBain lent the binders to the museum and gave permission for the museum to digitize the binder contents before returning the binders to her at Hayes Haven. This was done in the summer of 2020.

Scope and content

This is a virtual collection since the 6 physical 3-ring binders were returned to Janice McBain at Hayes Haven. In total, 357 photos were scanned in .tiff format and 143 documents which were scanned as pdf files with Optical Character Recognition. The documents were scanned at high resolution according to our archival standard (~3000 pixels on the long side). The binders whose contents were digitized were accessioned as individual items, The digital files reside on the museum's computer. The binders include photos and text documents - including news articles - that span most of the Orange Home's period of operation. The binders contain materials from the 1930s right up to the years of the Orange Home's closure in 1997.
