Edward Stanley Kellogg was born on 20 August 1870. He was appointed to the United States Naval Academy from New York State on 18 May 1888. He graduated with the Class of 1892 on 3 June 1892 and entered naval service as a Passed Naval Cadet. He was commissioned two years later as an assistant engineer in the Engineer Corps. He served briefly on the cruiser USS San Francisco before being assigned to USS Yorktown (Gunboat No. 1) on the Asiatic Station, reporting on 26 April 1895 (he may have served on or taken passage on the protected cruiser USS Baltimore at some time during this period). He served on USS Yorktown until the Spanish-American War when he was the assistant engineer for the screw steamer USS Hist.
Kellogg retired with the rank of captain in 1920. He died at the naval hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, on 1 August 1948.
The collection consists of two scrapbooks and associated material collected by Kellogg during his travels to Europe and the Far East while serving in the Engineer Corps. The bulk of the material consists of photographs, many of which appear to be commercial reproductions, interspersed with invitations to weddings, tickets to enter sights, invitations, programs and other similar souvenirs. The photographs generally are of poor quality.
The scrapbooks are housed in two boxes: one is located in the collections of the Photographic Section, Naval History and Heritage Command. The other is located in the Historical Manuscript Collection, Navy Department Libary.
