The Sawyer Collection Index

The glass plate negatives included in "The Sawyer Collection" actually break down into 4 different collections:

  1. Kiser negatives, taken by Fred Kiser. (2,698). Most images available on the website are from this collection. 
  2. East Coast negatives, taken by Henry G. Peabody. (86)
  3. Mexico negatives (130)
  4. Red Shirts (nitrate negatives) (284, including Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Tetons, other western locations). The meaning and significance of the label "Red Shirts" is unknown.

The SOHS Sawyer Index lists the names provided on all of the negative envelopes, with "Unlabeled" entered as necessary. Additional information on any photo would be appreciated, and in most cases added to the online description.

Please contact the SOHS Library for assistance or purchase of high resolution images.
