Encoded by: Laura Smith, January 2024

Since August 2017, we have added ethnic and racial identities for individuals and families represented in collections. To determine identity, we rely on self-identification; other information supplied to the repository by collection creators or sources; public records, press accounts, and secondary sources; and contextual information in the collection materials. Omissions of ethnic and racial identities in finding aids created or updated after August 2017 are an indication of insufficient information to make an educated guess or an individual's preference for identity information to be excluded from description. When we have misidentified, please let us know at wilsonlibrary@unc.edu.

The barrier island of Ocracoke is a remote part of North Carolina's Outer Banks accessible only by boat, ferry, or small private plane. Since the late nineteenth century, Ocracoke has been a destination for enthusiasts of outdoor recreation, sports, and leisure, particularly fishing and waterfowl hunting. The island is in Hyde County, N.C.

White North Carolinianan Frank Lanneau Fuller (1868-1952) was a Federal judge from Franklin County, N.C. Despite his name appearing in the album's title, his relationship to the photograph album is unclear.
