Scope and Contents note:
The collection consists of 47 lantern slides, some hand‐colored, that appear to have been made to illustrate a talk by Waite entitled, "Desert Sheiks." Images show Algerian nomadic people, their camps, and activities including animal husbandry, Algerian towns and villages, and views of the Algerian countryside. There are also several images of the Beloit College expedition camp and participants, including one photograph of George Waite taping up film cans.
