The Halliburton family in Memphis consisted of Wesley and Nelle Halliburton, their sons, Richard and Wesley Jr. and their close friend, Mary Hutchison. At the end of his life, Wesley was the last living member of the family and he took great care to compile many scrapbooks loaded with photographs, documents and notes of all kind, relating to his famous son's adventures. Each page is a time capsule of another time and place and well represents the obvious affection Wesley Halliburton felt for his family. Below is a small small sample of those scrapbooks, now being archived in the Special Collections of Rhodes College in Memphis.
