Sarah Hall Ladd joined the Oregon Camera Club in September 1899, and, by early 1901, a number of her works were on exhibition in San Francisco. In 1903, leading New York photographer Alfred Stieglitz formed Photo-Secession, a group of elite American photographers that never numbered more than 105 members, and both Sarah Hall Ladd and Lily White were included among the select membership. ~The Oregon History Project
