Collection Overview

The Hatteras Marlin Club Photographs, 1964-2019, contains color and black and white photographs taken during the club's annual fishing tournaments. Photographs are primarily 8" x 10" or 4" x 6" and were originally housed in photo albums. Many of the photographs taken during early tournaments in the 1960s have sustained water damage and are unsuitable for reproduction. The images depict the various events associated with the annual fishing tournament, including cookouts, luncheons, dances, luaus, games, parties, socializing, formal dinners, awards ceremonies, and family events. Additionally, images of the tournament participants are usually included, depicting the various boats participating in the tournament, teams bringing in fish, successful participants posing with their best catch, tournament winners, and prizes presented. In addition to fishing tournament photographs, one folder of images depicting property damage to the club in the wake of a 2003 storm (possibly Hurricane Isabel) is also included. Very rarely, related papers (such as tournament schedules and flyers) are included with the photographs. Photographs have not survived for every tournament; for instance, the first four tournaments (1959-1963) are not represented in the collection.
