NEA Photograph Collection Processing Underway
Mrs. Catherine Barrett, NEA President and Frank Merrick, Education Editor, Time Magazine. 1971-1972 NEA Reporter Photographs
The NEA photograph collection is currently being processed. The collection consists of over 15,000 individual photographs in a variety of formats and sizes, including negatives and contact prints. Many of the photographs were used in NEA publications and have red marks or pica count written on them signifying how the editor wanted the picture cropped or sized.
They document individual NEA members from the association President to classroom teachers, as well as schoolchildren, politicians and others important in the history of American education. The goal of description is to, as much as possible, identify individuals, places and events in each photo so that users can find the image that best meets their needs.
