The Wallace Richter Album: Selected 1941-1943 Campus Photographs from UGA 07-005
The photographs of Henry Wallace Richter, a photographer for both the Pandora yearbook and the Red & Black newspaper provide a fascinating and varied look at life on the UGA Campus as the country moved into World War Two. Details about Richter and his collection can be found in our finding aid, UGA 07-005, but in this album we invite you to enjoy a few of the striking photographs from his collection.
Feel free to browse through scrap drives, "blackout" parties and risque fake French barrooms, but remember that images may only be used elsewhere with permission from the Hargrett Library.
Although Richter supplied unusually detailed information about his subjects, some remain unknown. If you can tell us anything about a photograph, please contact us through the Hargrett Reference Request page. See the finding aid to this collection here.
