Photographs, 1920-1973 and undated

 Series 7

These photographs document McKeldin's career and personal life, concentrating most heavily on his tenure as mayor in the 1950s. Included are photographs from major events in Maryland history, including the opening of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in 1952, the dedication of the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel in 1957, Dwight D. Eisenhower's visit to Baltimore, and McKeldin's mayoral and gubernatorial inaugurations; many of these photographs are autographed. Also included is a group photograph featuring Herbert Hoover and Theodore R. McKeldin, which may have been taken at the renaming of Baltimore's Pennsylvania Station in 1928. There are also depictions of buildings, ships, and other landmarks.

Arrangement is primarily chronological, with two boxes of general photographs, such as portraits, arranged by subject. Photographs that were previously arranged in albums remain grouped together by the title of the album. Unidentified photographs appear at the end of the series. Twenty-three photographs were initially integrated into the Photograph collection, and may be found by their original accession numbers.
