Scope and content

This series contains photographs that were cataloged and assigned identification numbers (P-### for prints or N-### for negatives). Many of these photographs were originally donated. The donor information in the card catalog was used to either create new photograph collections or incorporate into existing collections. This series is comprised of the remaining items that fit in standard document boxes. Information about donors, if known, is available in the inventory of files.
