The Hillwood Museum presents A Photographic Journey of the Ambassador’s Daughter : Moscow, 1937-38, opening October 26, 2010.

While life in 1930s Moscow was a mystery to the outside world, special diplomatic access granted Emlen Knight Davies, daughter of U.S. Ambassador Joseph E. Davies, a rare insider’s point of view. Approximately 30 large prints recounting day-to-day life in the Soviet Union, which have been enlarged from pieces in Emlen Davies’ private collections and photo albums, are on view in the exhibition A Photographic Journey of the Ambassador’s Daughter: Moscow, 1937-38 from October 26, 2010 to May 29, 2011 at Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens.
