  • Eventually, we hope to digitize this collection in full, but how much we can get done by the bicentennial will depend on time and money. We will start with a specific series or sub-series of photographs that will be designated after the collection has been reprocessed by the Bicentennial Archivist.
  • Per 1/14/19 BPWG: This collection was removed from the Bicentennial Digitization Priorities list.
