Black and White Negatives

Collection Creator:
Brinkworth, William Ian  Search this
Extent:
Cold Vault Shelves B5-6 and B5-7 (black and white negatives)
Note:
All of the negatives are located on shelves B5-6 and B5-7 in the cold vault. The unaccessioned empty negative sleeves and booklets were placed in four boxes for future reference.
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1946-1957
Scope and Contents note:
35mm b/w negatives: EEPA 2008-009-0801 to EEPA 2008-009-4422 Large format b/w negatives: EEPA 2008-009-4423 to EEPA 2008-009-4427

The negatives depict Benin clay figures, hairstyling, the Oba's queens, Brinkworth's touring van, bronze casting and figures, tattooing, masquerades and other ceremonies, fishing, agriculture, crafts and marketplaces, dancing and musicians, personal adornment, architecture, transportation vehicles, beading and crown-making, cooking, shrines, temples, the playing field at Alaro, various art objects, Nigerian colonial soldiers, government and court processes and European domestic life.
Arrangement note:
Series V, the black and white negatives, contain 35mm and large format (3.5' x 2.25' and 5.5' x 3.75') black and white negatives. The negatives were originally housed in sleeves and booklets provided by Brinkworth and in many cases these sleeves included hand-written identifications. The booklets were arranged in chronological order and were numbered in that order, and the negatives were kept in the original order within the sleeves and booklets. These negatives were accessioned as "35 mm b/w negatives." The negatives that were not originally housed in booklets were grouped and accessioned according to numbers and letters written by Brinkworth on the negatives sleeves (these negatives have been labeled "35mm b/w negatives labeled by Brinkworth"). There were a small number of negatives in miscellaneous sleeves with no written identification. These were accessioned as "Miscellaneous 35mm b/w negatives." The large-format negatives are accessioned as "5.5' x 3.75' b/w negatives" and "3.5' x 2.25' b/w negatives."
General note:
A few of the negatives are bent, torn or have suffered other damage. Many have corresponding b/w photographs and contact sheets, which were included in the collection when it was donated. A list of corresponding b/w negatives and b/w photographs is provided in the inventory (the last four digits of the 35mm b/w negative accession number is provided in brackets after the accession number of the corresponding b/w photograph).
Collection Restrictions:
Use of original records requires an appointment. Contact Archives staff for more details.
Collection Rights:
Permission to reproduce images from the Eliot Elisofon Photographic Archives must be obtained in advance. The collection is subject to all copyright laws.

Black and White Negatives

Arnold, Rudy, 1902-1966  Search this
Extent:
5,303 acetate negatives
Type:
Archival materials
Acetate negatives
Series note:
This series contains 5,303 4 x 5 inch black and white negatives; condition of the negatives is good overall, with some images showing deterioration and yellowing. The majority of the negatives in this series depict aircraft (grouped by aircraft type) with folder titles corrected to NASM Aircraft Authority standards. The remaining subject groupings are those believed to have been used by Arnold. Arrangement presents one folder of "Groups of Aircraft" followed by individual aircraft types (alphabetical by manufacturer then model), a biographical section (alphabetical by last name), and ends with subject groups (alphabetical by title).

Digital slideshows are available for the aircraft and biographical subject groupings of this series; each image of a negative in the folder appears immediately followed by an image of its NASM-produced negative envelope. The number prefixed "XRA" appearing in pencil in the upper right corner of each envelope is the NASM image reference number for that negative. The digital images in these slideshows were repurposed from scans made by an outside contractor for a commercial product and may show irregular cropping and orientation in addition to color variations resulting from damage to and deterioration of the original negatives.

Black-and-White Negatives

Collection Creator:
Bethlehem Steel Corporation  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1941-1963
Scope and Contents note:
This series is divided into six subseries: Subseries 4.1: #1-#4108, 1947-1961; Subseries 4.2: A1 to A400, 1941-1949; Subseries 4.3: B1 to B9995, 1953-1963; Subseries 4.4: C1 to C6999, 1963 [1969?]; Subseries 4.5: Chronological, 1950-1955; Subseries 4.6: Topical, 1941-1961. The negatives are approximately 4" x 5" and are housed in glassine envelopes. In some instances, 4" x 5" prints are filed behind the corresponding negative.

The alpha-numeric negatives are not complete. There are indices (see Series 3) for the negatives in boxes 36 to 38 and the logbooks (see Series 2) maintained by Richard R. Angelo. The indices provide the alpha-numeric identification number, date, and brief description for the negative. For example, negative B-528 documents the #4 mine machine shop looking west, March 12, 1954. Researchers should use the logbooks in conjunction with the negatives.

There are some negatives that document diagrams, drawings, plans, sectional views, schematics for ore pockets, mine shafts, and flow sheets for the Lebanon Concentrator and the crushing plant at the Grace Mine. Some of the negatives were used in the creation of the Bethlehem Mines Corporation, Cornwall Division, photograph album which documents progress as of December 31, 1964.
Collection Restrictions:
The collection is open for research use. Special arrangements required to view negatives due to cold storage. Using negatives requires a three hour waiting period. Contact the Archives Center at 202-633-3270.
