Raised from the Ashes: Cardinell-Vincent Company Photographs of the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exhibition

Arrangement, description, and rehousing of 2,000 glass plate negatives, 105 panoramic film negatives, and 6,700 photographic prints documenting the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exhibition in San Francisco, and digitization of 2,100 images.

This project will arrange, house, and describe the 2,000 glass negatives and 6,700 photographic prints of the Edward Rogers collection of Cardinell-Vincent Company and Panama Pacific International Exhibition (PPIE) photographs. The Rogers collection, in private hands until Fall 2014, has been called "truly the finest trove of PPIE images" in existence. It originated with the Cardinell-Vincent, the official photographers of the exposition, and is the largest known vestige of their archive. However its media types, physical condition, and lack of arrangement make research access impossible without a major archival processing and digitization project.
