George LeVarn, a young talented photographer, moved to Cambridge, MD with his wife Anne and young daughter Carol in the 1930s. He opened a studio in downtown Cambridge and operated it until 1938.
Most of the photographs were taken of local scenes and people of Dorchester County. He also did photographic work for Colonel Albanus Phillips and for Walter Chrysler. He documented President Roosevelt's visit at the dedication of the Emerson Harrington Bridge.
Many thanks to Mr. LeVarn's daughter, Carol LeVarn McCabe, and his son, Doc LeVarn, who was born in Cambridge. They donated
their father's works to the Dorchester County Public Library. Without their
generosity and thoughtfulness, the library wouldn't have the opportunity
of providing our community with a piece of its heritage that might easily
have remained lost to us.
