The Danton Burroughs
Family Scrapbook Series
ERB Memorabilia I
For as long as I can remember I have been surrounded by my grandfather's legacy. Edgar Rice Burroughs was a man with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and adventure, and his interests seemed to be split equally among the realms of past, present and future. He seemed to want to embrace and horde memories of his own unique world for posterity, and as a result he left behind an amazingly eclectic and gargantuan horde of books, photos, art, letters, magazines, and memorabilia. 

This family trait has been passed down through the generations -- to my dad, John Coleman Burroughs, to my uncle Hulbert, to aunt Joan Pierce. . . and to myself.I like nothing better than to immerse myself in the wonderful family archive I've inherited and to experience vicariously the wonderful life's roller coaster they rode through decades past. Over the years I have taken great joy in sharing these family "treasures" on our various Websites. Here is another assortment of items ranging from the 1920s to present day.
