The Labrecque Collection offers an insight into the world of Lewiston-Auburn's Franco-American community between 1947-1963. The photographs are particularly valuable for assessing middle-class family life and religious traditions, especially with regard to the Catholic Church before the Second Vatican Council. The Victor Labrecque Photographic Collection was acquired by the Franco-American Collection in 2002, after Victor Labrecque's death, through the generosity of his daughter, Pauline Moreau. The collection consists of some 5,000 negatives spanning more than 350 distinct events, of which the majority (approximately 200) are weddings. Reprints of photographs are available upon request.
