BOX 4-7, 12-52 Photographic : Black & White
Black and white photographic documentation includes negatives, contact sheets, and logs. The negatives are identified by a serial roll number (There are several sets of these: 01001-01268, 93193-93198, 93204-93205.) or by a number assigned by the laboratory when the film was processed. These latter numbers begin with a roll number, followed by a dash and then the batch number. Individual images are identified by the film's edge numbers. The inventory lists the negatives in numerical order and identifies the photographer for each roll and gives a brief description of the contents. Additional information about the photos may be acquired from related fieldnotes or sound recordings. Logs for the photos are listed by photographer and numerically. Contact sheets are arranged numerically and by photographer. In the latter set logs are attached to each contact.
