 Author:  Verkamp familyRequires cookie*
 Title:  Verkamp Collection 1905-2002 ead 
 Date(s):  1905-2002 
 Abstract:  The Verkamp Collection is really two collections: the detailed records of a thriving Grand Canyon business and a history of a prominent northern Arizona family active in the religious, social, and financial life of the community. Included are detailed financial records of Verkamp’s, the family curio and souvenir business at the south rim of the Grand Canyon which catered to the visitors at this most famous of national parks from the early 1900s until September 2008. Here are found ledgers, order books, bank statements, business correspondence, and employee records, plus glimpses of the family’s sideline interests in sheep raising and mining. Operating as a concessionaire of the National Park Service entangled the family in a layer of bureaucracy unique to such enterprises, and so the collection contains a record of the negotiations between Verkamps and the federal government over a whole host of issues including rate schedules, concession contracts, and even parking and employee housing. Family records include birth certificates, baby books, family correspondence, personal journals, the Verkamp’s involvement in construction and maintenance of the Shrine of the Ages Chapel at Grand Canyon, and even matters concerning the position of the Catholic Church on marriage and annulment. The collection also contains newspaper articles, magazine pieces, and journal articles concerning topics of interest to the family and the history of the local area. Supplementing the manuscripts are hundreds of photographs and home movies capturing all facets of this family’s life in northern Arizona. Included are family photographs, pictures taken on trips throughout Arizona and the United States (including Grand Canyon), portraits of friends and other individuals outside the family, plus photos taken of both the interior and exterior of the store located on the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
