Creator Note:

Richter and staff

Red & Black staff shown in the 1942 Pandora - Wallace Richter at the right.

In the months before and after Pearl Harbor, campus life was documented by the photographs of the late Henry Wallace Richter, a staff photographer for both the Red & Black student newspaper and the Pandora yearbook. Richter placed the negatives of his 1941-1943 work in carefully labeled envelopes, usually identifying the subject, date and intended publication. His camera work captures the carefree prewar life on campus and the transition to war status. We invite you to enjoy a sample of his work in our Wallace Richter Album exhibit.

Scope and Contents.

The Richter collection contains over 600 negatives from the 1941-1943 period. Positive images have been scanned by the Photoservices Unit of the Digital Library of Georgia and placed on CD-ROM discs available for examination in the Hargrett Library. The information used in the inventory consists largely of the information recorded by Richter on his storage envelopes. Anyone who has ever sorted through a box of unidentified old family photographs will appreciate his careful logging nearly as much as they appreciate his photography. The envelopes were arranged alphabetically by the information recorded by Richter, but have been rearranged in five broad categories: campus groups, locations & events; World War II at UGA; university athletics; fraternities and sororities and individual portraits.

In a few instances, damage to an envelope obliterated information. In several other cases the negatives were damaged, but images were still taken from them for historical interest.

Processing

Information from each envelope was transcribed to an acid-neutral folder and the negatives were removed from the acidic envelopes and placed in the folder. The images on the negatives were then scanned as positives and saved in TIF format at 600 DPI on compact disc.

Inventory

Generally the information given is Richter's transcribed from his envelopes. Corrections or additions added in processing have been placed in brackets. The numbers in parentheses at the end of each folder entry indicate the corresponding image as scanned by Libraries Photoservices.
