Kendrick Collection span nearly 50 years, depicting early agricultural techniques used in the Big Bend region of the Columbia Basin, interiors and exteriors of retail and commercial businesses, towns, street scenes, Churches, schools, Kendrick’s early photographs of the Northern Idaho wilderness, and a look at general day to day life on the farm. Before coming to the Washington State Archives in Cheney, Washington, the collection was in the custody of Adams County Rural Library District No. 2 (formerly Ritzville Public Library) in the city of Ritzville.
