George Peabody College Photograph Collection
Scope and Content
The collection is organized into nineteen series that represent the major aspects of the collection. It contains photographs, lithographs, and printed reproductions from publications, negatives, and slides. The 19th century processes found in the collection include albumen prints, lithographs, and salted paper prints. The 20th century photographs consist mainly of black and white prints, with color photographs appearing more frequently in the 1970’s.
The photographs are arranged chronologically within each topic, sleeved in Mylar with ten enclosures per folder. The ( ) behind a folder listing denotes the number of folders within that topic.
The George Peabody College Photographic Archives is comprised of photographic materials created by dozens of Peabody College staff over a number of years and only transferred to the Vanderbilt University Special Collections and Archives after the merger in 1979.
