Photographs and artwork, 1875-1968
Box 4; OP 1-3

Scope and Content Note

In August 1980, the Special Collections Department acquired a collection of photographs and other pictures from Emory University's Woodruff Professor of English Literature Richard Ellmann. Ellmann had collected these items during the course of his research, and most of the identifications that appear on the verso of these pictures are in his hand.

Additional original sketches, drawn on the leaves of published works and acquired separately from the Ellmann collection, are also listed below. Descriptions for these items include bracketed call numbers referring to the books in which the drawings appear; photocopies of these sketches have been placed in the boxed folders listed below.
