Collection Stored Off-Site

All or portions of this collection are housed off-site. Materials can still be requested but researchers should expect a delay of up to two business days for retrieval.

Subseries 7.1
Photographs, circa 1940-1973
Box 156 - Box 160: folders 1-2

Scope and Content Note

The photographs document classes, activities, events, staff members, committees, camps, and clubs. Many were taken by professional photographers, and a few were taken by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. These professionally produced photographs appear to have been used for publicity purposes. Another large subset of the photographs are snapshots. These photographs were originally filed within the other series in this collection. The majority were in a box of loose photographs. Some photographs and negatives were found loose in the scrapbooks and transferred to this series to protect them. Some photographs were originally in folders with documents and other records. These photographs were replaced in the files with photocopies of the originals, which were then transferred to this series. There are also slides of many of the events depicted in the photographs and negatives.

Arrangement Note

The photographs have been arranged according to the same intellectual schema used in the collection as a whole. They were first separated by branch and then sorted among the following categories: Activities, Administrative, Camps, Clubs, Committees and Other. If no branch could be determined, the photographs were filed under "Greater Atlanta." This category is also used for photographs that document the "Central YWCA," (which appears to have included the white branch and the administration for the Greater Atlanta YWCA prior to the mid-1960s.)
