Scope and Contents note:
Photographs made during William F. Baggerman's travels, including trips on the Pan-American Highway, the Tara River in Yugoslavia, and a Transsaharan "expedition" in the Amazon River Region, and in the Balkans, Tibet, Iran, Afghanistan, and Bakistan. They document people and their natural and built environments, as well as markets, ceremonies and festivals, transportation, and historical sites. Title slides and images of magazine articles and maps indicate that slides in the collection were probably used for lectures. The collection is accompanied by publications, letters, and itineraries relating to Baggerman's travels, as well as audio tapes of Sogyal Rinpoche's Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, and jewelry pieces collected by Baggerman (including rings and a bracelet).

William Francis Baggerman was a businessman in Missouri and Florida and an advocate for Tibet. An amateur photographer, he documented a variety of organized "expeditions" and "safaris" to foreign destinations, which he made in the 1950s and 1960s.
