Creation of the Views files

The Views collections were compiled by Harvard University Archives staff starting in approximately the late 19th century. Staff generally interfiled photographs or other 2-dimensional images, regardless of their source, into categories based on a location, building, or landscape feature and for ease of reference. The photographs either entered the University Archives alone or within larger collections or record groups. This practice was ceased by the year 2000.

Processing Information

This inventory encoded by Kate Bowers in July 2018. Titles, dates, and physical descriptions were assigned by photograph conservators in 2008.
