Biographical History

The photographs and slides in the collection have been gathered from a number of individuals and organizations in the field of adult education.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The photographs and slides in this collection have been collected from a number of individuals and organizations. Much of the material dates from the decade of the 1950s, best represented by the photographs pertaining to the programs of the Fund for Adult Education (FAE), coincidentally the largest single group of materials.

Arrangement of the Collection

The materials are arranged alphabetically by organization. A number of portraits are arranged alphabetically within the "Portraits" series.

A group of unidentified photographs follows the alphabetical sequence and, due to format, "Slides" follow the photographs. A folder of printed materials is at the end of the collection. The contents of these are not separately listed, since SEE and SEE ALSO references to them are present in the inventory.
