The Missoula Camera Club was a group of amateur photographers, including Maud Gibson, Myrta Wright Stevens, and E.W. Phillips, who shared an enthusiasm for learning the skills and techniques of photography. Two local professional photographers, F.M. Ingalls and R.H. McKay, oversaw the students.
For many at the turn of the century, photography became much more than a hobby. For the Missoula Camera club, photography was a way to document travels, the growth of a family, and the changes of the rapidly evolving city in which they lived. These photographers are among some of the only documented members of the Missoula Camera Club, although there were likely many others.
