Scope and Content
Photographs were used to illustrate news articles on a wide range of topics, but most are related to Connecticut and of these the majority are of people, places, and events in Hartford. While the collection includes some early historical photographs, the bulk of the material dates from the 1950s through the 1970s. It is therefore a rich source for images of social change, protest, and urban renewal. The organization of the collection maintains the original subject categories established by the newspaper.
The records are stored in a restricted area and therefore may not be available on a same-day basis.
