Biography of Richard Ballantyne (1817-1898), who became a Mormon convert in 1842, followed shortly by his widowed mother and the rest of the family. They immigrated in 1843 from Scotland (via New Orleans) to Nauvoo, Illinois, and moved to Salt Lake valley in 1848. Richard married three times (in 1847, and polygamously in 1855 and 1856). In Utah, he began a Sunday School and the Church accepted and sponsored the Sunday School plan. In early 1853, Richard was called to be one of several missionaries who sailed for India, where he worked in the Madras District. They had some initial success, but also much publicity against them. Late in 1854, very ill, Richard was released to go home (via England). In England he was placed in charge of a company of Mormons immigrating to Utah; they arrived in September 1855. He moved to Eden and then Ogden, Utah, eventually spending much of his time with the Sunday School program of the Church

382 images which include original albumen prints, photographs of paintings, postcards, illustrations, broadsides, and ship schedules.

The images are primarily of emigrant ships, including both sail and steam ships, and portraits of ship captains and crews. In addition, images of launching points and landing points are included, such as Liverpool, Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. The collection also contains miscellaneous images, including modern pictures of Cruiseliners, and photographs of Ute Indians. Paintings in the photographs are dated from 1579 to 1700s; other images in the collection date from 1870s to1990s
