Accruals and Additions

These materials were photographed with digital cameras in Archives. Many of the materials in Series 1, 2, 5, and 6 were photographed with an Olympus Camedia Camera C4000 Zoom starting in 2006. These images are small enough that they didn't have to be reduced to be displayed in Archon. They were originally cataloged in PastPerfect and then exported to Archon. At that time, beginning in 2011, we used a Nikon Coolpix to photograph the clothing in Series 5 and 6. A Nikon D-50 and Nikon D-70 were also used to complete photography of this collection as much as possible. PhotoMe or another IPTC data reader would be necessary to accurately document all the hardware used to capture images of this colleciton.
