This collection was purchased by the University of Maryland Libraries from Palinurus Antiquarian Books on March 26, 2018.
Upon arrival, the materials were re-housed into an archival quality box and placed in acid-free protective sleeves. Glass plate negatives were re-ordered into numerical order, which is also chronological. The original envelopes have been saved and can be found in the box with the slides. The original plate number was transferred to the new envelope. All other information can be found on the original envelope itself.
