This scrapbook contains numerous reproductions of baby and childhood photographs of the quints which appeared in the press. The majority of these photographs were taken by Fred Davis, official photographer for the quints and employee of the Toronto Star.

Photographs and profiles of Dr. Dafoe and of the nursing staff for the quints are also contained in this scrapbook. Some clippings report on the flood of tourists to Callander, Ont. to view the quints. Other clippings relate to a feature film entitled "The County Doctor" to be made about the quints.
