Series 8. Still Photographs, ca. 1938-1983. Boxes 48-54 (+ slide storage, negative
Although there are some formal portraits, most of the photographs
are snapshots. Many are of the family of Beth Faubus or were
taken by her, and include negatives. There is also a large
collection of negatives (for which there are few corresponding
prints) pertaining to Faubus's activities as governor.
Photographs that were included in letters have been left in the
appropriate correspondence files. Similarly, a few photographs
and drawings originally with other material have been left with
that material. All the negatives are in negative storage; the
slides are in slide storage. Most of the images are numbered with
Arabic numerals. Addition photographs added to the collections
have been placed in appropriate boxes and folders and numbered
with Roman numerals.

In negative storage:
Negatives are stored in protective sleeves, a total of 258
numbered sheets. Most of the color negatives are from snapshots,
mostly taken by Beth or Orval, and representative prints are in
the collection. Sheets 42-248 contain 4" x 5" black-and-white
negatives dating from Faubus's time as governor. None of these
have corresponding prints in this collection.
Because so many negatives have no corresponding prints and
because the negatives are in protective sleeves, the negative
files of this collection are open to researchers.
