About this collection

The First World War was perhaps the most influential conflict of the 20th century, as later conflicts, social and artistic movements that grew out of the upheaval that was the Great War.

The following digital images are a compilation from numerous sources including multiple photograph albums, personal and corporate collections.

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.

PLEASE NOTE:  Although the images included on this page document historical events, they may not be suitable for viewing by all age groups.  Please be aware that some of these images are extremely graphic and could be disturbing.
