The cataloging and digitization of the Alden Scott Boyer collection of nineteenth century photography. This collection is a formative part of the George Eastman Museum’s photography collection, containing more than 10,000 individual photographic objects and 3,000 books, periodicals, and manuals related to photography.

George Eastman Museum will catalog, digitize and provide broad access to the Boyer collection of photography, a formative part of the museum’s photography collection. Over 10,000 objects will be cataloged and at least 29,600 digital image files will be created. The Boyer Collection is one of the most significant public collections in the U.S. for the study of nineteenth-century life, history, and culture and one of the largest and most diverse gatherings of nineteenth century British photography outside of the U.K. It is also one of the most important museum collections of vernacular photography in the U.S. Scholars, researchers and the public will benefit from online and physical access to these important materials. It is anticipated that new connections will be drawn that will illuminate a variety of humanities research topics. The project will commence in May 1, 2019 and will be completed by April 30, 2022.
