Pawtucket Times editor Jim Murphy may have been Gabby's number-one fan. They were born in adjacent parts of Massachusetts, and Murphy ultimately wrote the 1983 biography The Gabby Hartnett Story: From a Mill Town to Cooperstown. These three dozen photos of Hartnett were used in the making of the book and are mostly 5x7 to 8x10. There is also a quartet of 3x5 snapshots from Hartnett's appearance at a HOF induction ceremony, plus a few slide negatives from his K.C. Athletics days. With a few exceptions, the photos appear to be Types III and IV and most document his later years, with some duplication. Accompanying the collection are 4 Hartnett family Christmas cards from 1927 to 1944 in their original envelopes.
