Peabody Museum: Photographic Archives
The Peabody Museum’s extensive photographic collection is a treasure trove of late nineteenth- to early twentieth-century photography, with more than 500,000 images from daguerreotypes to color, 35mm, and slide photography. Subjects include expeditions, indigenous peoples, and cultures spanning the globe. The photograph collection is generally considered to be one of the ten largest photographic archives documenting world cultures. The collection also includes photo documentation of the history of the Peabody Museum, its exhibitions, staff, and related archaeological expeditions and artifacts.
