Many of the photographs in our collections do not fall into easy categorization of the other digital collections as described on this site. Many of these will appear here. They include photos of historical Tulsa, historical Oklahoma, historical portraits, lithographs, and so on.
The following digital images are a compilation from various sources including the Oklahoma Collection (2006.012) and the Ellis Clark Soper collection (1931.004), Helen Rushmore archive (1976.001) among others.
Photos are described as:
•Postcards: Prints that were made into postcards (as was commonly done in the past).
•Photographic prints: Photos printed from the original negatives.
•Photographic reproduction: Second or later generation photographs, frequently made by scanning in a photograph or photographing another image, resulting in the creation of a new negative. These are derivative works and less detailed than photographic prints.
Anyone who is interested in obtaining copies of any of the images should contact the Department of Special Collections, McFarlin Library, The University of Tulsa about requests for photo-duplication, publication policies, and applicable charges.
