Panoramic Photographs


Numerous people have assisted in the archival organization, preservation, housing, cataloging, digitizing, and development of the online presentation of the Panoramic Photograph Collection. Assistant curator Carol Johnson has worked extensively with the collection since it was chosen for inclusion in American Memory. Philip J. Michel, digital conversion specialist, oversaw the digitization of the collection and assisted with the conservation and cataloging.

Other Prints & Photographs Division staff who contributed to the development of the project include Katherine M. Arrington, Alan Bisbort, Beverly Brannan, Verna Curtis, George Hobart, Arlene Hughes, Megan Keister, Jane Makich, Cheryl Megerdigian, Tracy Meehleib, Barbara Natanson, Charles Noble, Elisabeth Parker, Bernard Reilly, Marcy Silver, Amy Staples, and Helena Zinkham.

National Digital Library Program staff who contributed to the project include Mary Ambrosio, Karen Billett, Marc Dudley, Carl Fleischhauer, Joanne Freeman, Melissa Smith Levine, and Glenn Ricci.

Marybeth Peters and James C. Roberts of the Library's Copyright Office coordinated copyright research.

Minaret cataloging assistance was offered by Elaine Woods and Anton R. Pierce (Automation Planning Liaison Office).

Karen Rall helped design the special presentation.

Sarah Wagner and Barbara Lemmen of the Library's Conservation Office devised a system for humidifying, flattening, mending, and housing the panoramic photographs.

The panoramic photographs were scanned by Stokes Imaging Services. Our thanks to Steve Anderson, Erich Stokes, John R. Stokes, and Nancy Yelle.

John R. Stokes and Jenny Monesson of JJT, Inc. prepared the digital images.

Bucky Wall of Buckaroo Associates produced the video program, which could not have been made without the generous cooperation of James and Rochelle Ivey of Washington's Central Photo Company.

Gratitude is extended to Janice Madhu and Todd Gustafson at the International Museum of Photography and Film at the George Eastman House; Barbara Hall and Jon M. Williams at the Hagley Museum and Library; and Roy Flukinger and Andrea Inselmann at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, University of Texas at Austin, which holds the archive of panoramic photographer Eugene O. Goldbeck.

We would also like to express our appreciation to Miles Weaver, the son of one of the photographers represented in our collection, who eagerly provided biographical material concerning his father's career in photography.
