Scope and Content

Vintage prints were created for the Park and Recreation Department and displayed periodically in departmental offices and meeting rooms.

Portraits were transferred to the City Archives on April 15, 1992.  A conservation project was initiated which included removal of the original wood frames and rehousing in acid-free envelopes and boxes.  Original matting materials were removed.  Oval mattes with portrait identification were retained.  All other highly acidic materials were discarded.  Copy negatives were created for preservation and reproduction.


The collection is arranged alphabetically.  Negatives, housed in Box 3, are arranged by negative number.  Frames have been wrapped and stored at the request of the Park and Recreation Department.


Permission to publish, reproduce, distribute, or use by any and all other current or future developed methods or procedures must be obtained in writing from the Dallas Municipal Archives.  All rights are reserved and retained regardless of current or future development or laws that may apply to fair use standards.
