Summary:
This collection contains photographs of North American Rom Gypsies by donor Sheila Salo; also copy prints, negatives, and slides made from material in other collections.
Scope and Contents:
This collection contains photographs of North American Rom Gypsies by donor Sheila Salo; also copy prints, negatives, and slides made from material in other collections. The photographs by Ms. Salo are Kodak color prints, while the copy photographs are all black-and-white prints, negatives, and a slide. Most of the copy negatives and prints were made from a series of photographs taken in Chicago, 1928, of settlement houses, including Hull House, with some Mexican subjects. Captions have been typed on the backs of most of the color and black-and-white prints by Ms. Salo.

The collection is divided into two series: (1) Color photoprints by Sheila Salo; and (2) Black-and-white copy photographs. Formats include: color photographic prints (4" x 6" and 3-1/2" x 5"), black-and-white photographic copy prints (3-1/2 x 5"), 35mm negatives, a slide, and a 4" x 5" copy negative. The color prints depict Gypsies and Gypsy community events in Illinois; Ontario; Ste.-Anne-de-Beaupré, Quebec; Mississippi; Louisiana; and New Jersey. The subject emphasis is on wedding and saint's day celebrations, and memorial services for the deceased.
Arrangement:
Collection arranged into one series. Roughly chronological.

Series 1: Color Photoprints by Sheila Salo, 1973-1979

Series 2: Copy Photographs, Black-and-White
Historical:
Most of the color photographs were taken by Sheila Salo in 1973-1979: (a) Canada, 1973, 1976, and 1977 as part of research supported by contracts from the National Museums of Canada; and (b) taken in Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, and New Jersey through 1979. Sheila Salo and her husband Matt are historians of Gypsy culture; Ms. Salo also processed and wrote the register for the the Carlos de Wendler-Funaro Gypsy Research Collection. The Salos have personal contacts among Gypsy groups, and they made these photographs to document Gypsy customs, clothing, and rituals.
Provenance:
Collection donated by Matt and Sheila Salo, [1990?].
