The Early Color Photography Conservation and Digitization Project

The cataloging and digitization of 15,030 early color glass slides created by explorers and researchers between 1914 and 1944, covering the Arctic regions, Greenland, and Alaska. An accompanying finding aid would include not only description of the photographs but also some 3,000 textual objects that document the content and the creation of the collection.

The project aims to complete a comprehensive survey, analysis, and digital preservation program of the National Geographic Society’s collection of Autochromes, Dufaycolor, Finlaycolor, and Agfachrome plates from the 1910s-1944, collectively known as the Early Color Collection.
