Negative Log Book Number 22, (94-5201 to 95-8006)
About the Project
Did you know that the Smithsonian first began using photographs to document its collections, events, and exhibits as far back as 1896? Centuries later, photographers have built on the work that the Smithsonian's first photographer, Thomas Smilie, began all those years ago. This corps of Smithsonian photographers has kept track of their work in handwritten logbooks, which includes information such as negative numbers, photograph subjects, museum departments, and dates.
Help us uncover the fascinating visual past of the Smithsonian Institution by transcribing this log of photographs taken between 1994-1995.
