Series 8. Still Photographs, ca. 1938-1983. Boxes 48-54 (+ slide storage, negative storage).

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.
