Negatives are chiefly of the Boynton Beach Police Department, many noted as being taken by William H. Waters, police photographer.

After a career in New York City as a legal secretary, she returned to Boynton in 1976 and was active in many local organizations, including the Boynton Beach Historical Society and Boynton Woman's Club.
