Scope and content

Subseries consists of approximately 375 black and white or colour prints, 98 colour transparencies, and 9 contact sheets. The prints appear to be mainly silver gelatin prints, although some of the older portraits are probably albumin prints. The photographs and transparencies date from ca. 1900 to 1989.

Immediate source of acquisition


The archivist found the material scattered throughout several boxes. She grouped the prints according to the Halpern family member who was the principal subject, and she numbered the prints consecutively with an "H" designation before each number. Within the broad groupings by person, there is some further subdivision by type of photograph (i.e., portrait), or by activity (e.g., scientific activities, leisure activities).
