Bayard H. Paine
1889 Travel Journal

Bayard H. Paine, lawyer, Nebraska Supreme Court Judge, and tireless traveler, was a man of many interests and a talented wit and story-teller. He graduated from Grand Island High School in 1889. In 1894, Paine graduated from Northwestern University with a bachelor's degree in science and started studying law in 1898. He married Grace Bentley in 1902, and after taking law courses at the University of Michigan, passed the Nebraska bar in 1904. From 1907 until 1949, he sat on the bench in various courts, most notably in the Nebraska Supreme Court.

Bayard H. Paine traveled whenever he got the opportunity. He kept meticulous records of costs as well as impressions of places visited. As his family grew, he took them along as well. Bayard Paine, his wife Grace Bentley Paine and their three children, Alice (b. 1903), Charles (b.1905) and Bayard Jr. (b. 1906) were great camera fans, and took numerous photographs, some of which have been included here.
