One of the benefits of having a prominent photographer for a father? Your childhood is well-documented.

Here are five photos of Aileen Havlin Harris, who was born on October 7, 1915 in Washington DC. Her father, George W Harris, co-owned the Harris & Ewing Inc. photographic studio in DC. Among his many accomplishments, he became the official White House photographer in the early 1900s, and served in that position from the Roosevelt through Eisenhower administrations.

The elder Harris donated 700,000 of his more than five million negatives to the Library of Congress, among which we found these portraits of young Aileen. – NJP
