Harris & Ewing Collection:

Available online are more than 41,000 glass negatives–all but approximately 400 glass negatives in the collection. This represents a substantial subset of the estimated 50,000 news photographs and 20,000 studio portraits of notable people in the collection.
Titles for the images are taken from unverified caption data received with the collection. When no caption data was received, the title says “NO CAPTION.”
Approximately 28,000 film negatives in the collection have not been digitized; access is through a paper finding aid in the reading room.
