Photography collection

The Still Image Collection contains images created by the Society and by organizations, institutions and individuals who have gifted their collections to the Society to be maintained or added to the Society’s digital collection. Slides, photographs, negatives and other print images have been digitized using cameras or scanners. Most of the images are portraits and informal snapshots of individual professional leaders, but many show groups attending various meetings and events. Some images are scanned from magazine, newsletter and newspaper clippings.

Please contact us about photographs or other images that you own and would like to donate to our collection and let us know should you have additional information about any of the images displayed on this website, such as date, names of people in photograph, photographer, contributor, etc.
