The Whitehead Collection

As Freida was the eldest Bogisch child she inherited the family records and photographs. Along with her own memorabilia of her personal photo album, autograph book and other family donations has created what is referred to as "The Whitehead Collection" and was handed down to her descendants.

Only a handful of these photographs and records have ever been seen in public. They are of great historical importance and the bulk of it being her personal collection will be on this page when released.

Other images and records will be spread over on the main Bogisch Family Pages.
